Kyoto University Rakuyu Kaikan

Kyoto University Rakuyu Kaikan was built in 1925 commemorating the university's 25th anniversary, designed by then Assistant Professor Keiichi Morita of the Department of Architecture , Faculty of Engineering, Kyoto University. The tile-roofed two-story reinforced concrete building with a Spanish Mission style exterior, together with interior decorations designed by then Professor Nobuo Moriya from Tokyo Higher School of Arts & Technology well embodies the characteristics of Taisho architecture. In 1998, the building was designated as a registered tangible cultural property of Japan.

Rakuyu Kaikan was renovated in September 2010 as an assembly hall with its old taste equipped with conference rooms and a cafe & restaurant. 
The facility is available for Kyoto University faculty members as an arena of academic exchange.
