The main building of Homotsuden (the Treasure Museum) is a ferro-concrete building built in 1921. Its style, however, is a copy of the Oyukazukuri (high floor style) of Azekurazukuri Shosoin (the Japanese National Treasure House in Nara). In the building, various items used by Emperor Meiji and Empress Shoken or closely related to them are exhibited.

ŠTreasure Museum is closed for earthquake-proof construction from January 10 until further notice.
