Hakuunkan is the former Yawata East School that was built by Yawata merchants in the Meiji era to enhance the education of local children. Most of the cost was covered by citizen donations. Currently, it is used as a tourist information center and a citizen's gallery. The townhouses that make up the townscape of Omi Hachiman are basically wooden buildings with gabled pier tiles. The front view consists of a lattice, a grid, and a cage window. In addition, a large pine tree is placed in the garden facing the road to take in the greenery and give the landscape a sense of peace and well-being.
