NotesThe building was originally built in 1928 (Showa 3) to be Hamamatsu Police Station. It is one of the few buildings that, along with the citizens of Hamamatsu, survived the Tonankai Earthquake in 1944 (Showa 19) and the bombing of Hamamatsu during World War II in the following year.


It is constructed with reinforced concrete in a style called "early modern times revival," and it has three stone arches in its façade. Its demolition was discussed once in the past but in the end, the decision was made to reinforce it and keep it as a legacy of modern architecture.
