Learn and Observe

The coastal area of Wakamatsu Ward is dotted with buildings from the Taisho era (1912 to 1926), and it offers a glimpse into the history of the Meiji era, when the coal industry flourished. The Former Furukawa Kogyo Wakamatsu Building with its red-brick exterior is an example of renaissance architecture. The steel-reinforced concrete Tochiki Building and the symmetry of the western architecture of the Sekitan (Coal) Building are some of these historic buildings. Adjoining the Sekitan Building is the Mikadukiya pastry store which offers a rich variety of croissants made from natural yeast. You can purchase 14 different types of croissants as souvenirs, including maple, cheese and tea flavors.
