As the museum is close to the Hirosaki Castle, one should drop by and have a quick walk around. It’s of nice old architecture and very Western style.

The building was formerly a bank and now used as a memorial museum. The architecture is European in style. Quite elegant. Displays focus on the development of Japanese coins/money from the samurai days to modern time. Quite interesting. It is located close to Hirosaki Park and no harm dropping by. By the way, admission is not free.

This building seems very much out of place, would look much more at home in Munich. Very nice piece of Western-style architecture.

I did not know what to exspect before arriving to Aomori Bank Museum with my mom and her dear friend from Hirosaki. Viewing the changes of currency as the years passed was very interesting to see the images put on the money. That is something we take for granted. It was well worth the visit to the Bank Museum. Also depending on your time frame it doesn't take long to look. Very interesting museum.

The 59th National Bank Main Building is a beautiful retro building that used to stand facing the main street on the southeast side of Hirosaki Park.
According to the information board in front of the building, it was originally a national bank established in 1879 and is now the Aomori Bank Memorial Hall.
The slightly dull white and mint green exterior is stylish and beautiful, and it is a Western-style building that exudes dignity. The designer, Sakichi Horie, is also said to have designed Shayokan, the birthplace of Dazai Osamu.

This is the main building of the 59th Bank, built in the Meiji era, near Hirosaki Castle. If you leave Otemon Square on the side of the courthouse and continue straight east along the road on the north side of the courthouse, you will see it over Cosmo Oil.
It is a Meiji Renaissance-style building, and as it has been designated as an Important Cultural Property of Japan, it is a Western-style building worth seeing, with an ornate and stately exterior. Perhaps because it is a bank, the interior atmosphere is also stately, but not too heavy or light, maintaining an exquisite balance. The business room on the first floor still has a splendid keyaki counter, and the chandelier is modern and tasteful from a modern perspective. The large conference room on the second floor has gold leather paper used for the ceiling decoration, and although it is more ornate than the first floor, it is not excessive and gives a sense of history. I think it could still be used as a bank.
There are many Western-style buildings remaining in Hirosaki, but this is a building that you cannot miss if you are touring Western-style buildings in Hirosaki.
