As a constantly aging historical building, we face issues such as securing the financial resources to cover the costs of managements, maintenance and repairs. This problem has become increasingly significant with each passing year. Under these circumstances, local organizations such as the Omi Brotherhood Public Interest Incorporated Foundation, Omi Hachiman City Tourism Association, Omi Hachiman City Hall, various community development organizations, tourism and volunteer groups, have all worked together to actively utilize the building and share it with wider audiences, as an accommodation and a tourist destination. This generates profit revenues to fund maintenance and management, so the building may be preserved for future generations.
We greatly appreaciate your interst and participation in our guided tours to help maintain this treasured heritage of the Vories architecture, and a National Tangible Cultural Property.
