It was impressive to see "The Drawing Room, Townshend House, 10th September 1885" by Anna Alma-Tadema (1867-1943) that exercises influences over life style beyond the framework of art.

At the 3rd floor, it is interesting to see the blick wall and the structure of roof space. It is enjoybale to see the beautiful scenery of sophisticated Ichigokan Plaza from corridor. Also, it has a modern atmosphere at the replicated space of bank office in Cafe 1894.
