The museum is a reproduction of the former Fukumoto residence, which was donated to the town by his bereaved family. It was built in 1928, after Mr. Fukumoto returned to Japan, and its architectural splendor, as well as its blend of Japanese and Western styles, is very interesting as something that was built by a traveler after he returned to Japan. There is also a museum store inside the museum.
