The Ueno Building was constructed as the Wakamatsu branch of the Mitsubishi Joint Stock Company. It is the centerpiece among other western architecture buildings lining the Wakamatsu Bund (waterfront area). It has been registered as an Important Tangible Cultural Property and has been the location for the filming of movies and TV commercials. Inside the building are businesses and shops, and you can enjoy lunch and home-made sweets in the Asa Café on the third floor. From the window you can see the Wakato Bridge and the ships passing through the Dokai Bay. Enjoy the relaxing view of Wakamatsu from here.
