The Old Hisatomi Residence

Kameichi Hisatomi, the founder of the footwear store Hisatomi Shoten moved to the present location of this old building in 1921 and opened an office for his footwear wholesaling business here. The building used to have a factory in its backyard where they were manufacturing Japanese footwear. With the business expanded to reach the Korean market, his company became one of the major footwear manufacturers / retailers in the prefecture. The wooden sigh board with the name of the office written in old style from right to left (opposite to the way Japanese letters are commonly written today) is proudly displayed inside the store still today and reminds visitors of the old history of the store. Currently, the building is tenanted by Konekuriya, the handcraft cafe, on the first floor, and the photo studio Harenohi on the second floor and some other art-related stores and allows you to casually browse around pieces of artworks.
