[Tsushima City Tourism Exchange Center]
A Showa-esque facility that also provides tourist information
Tsushima City Tourism Exchange Center is housed in a building that was erected in 1929 and used as Nagoya Bank and the Tsushima Branch of Tokai Bank. In this two-story retro building made of reinforced concrete, there is a full-scale model of a makiwarabune boat lantern on display. These lanterns are used in the Owari Tsushima Tenno Festival, which has over 600 years of history. Visitors to the center can also see a video of the festival. The facility also provides sightseeing maps and event information about the surrounding area for tourists. Why not drop by while strolling around the town?
