Ogura-tei (The Former Ogura Residence) is a traditional Japanese residence that was built for the head of the Fukushima branch of the Bank of Japan in 1927. The Fukushima branch was the first Bank of Japan branch in the Tohoku region. The residence was also used by the American Army following WWII which resulted in the reception room being re-modeled in a Western style. Ogura-tei retains its Japanese elegance and a beautiful garden with fantastic views of the Abukuma River. Visitors can also survey the old warehouse which was once a storage area for rice waiting to be shipped down river.
