Once a school, Jiyu Gakuen Myonichikan is now a designated Important Cultural Property of Japan. Built in 1921 by American architect Frank Lloyd Wright and his apprentice Arata Endo, Myonichikan has a Western facade with a large grassy area in the middle. Although the name Myonichikan means "House of Tomorrow," you will see plenty of furniture used by students in the past. Most of them are wooden, giving off a modest vibe.

Nowadays, in addition to tours, many people come to the building for marriage ceremonies, seminars, discussion meetings, concerts, and public lectures.
