FUGU AND LIGHTS HINAMATSURI FESTIVAL

The former Osaka Mercantile building built in the 6th year of the Taisho Period (1917) is an impressive and Western-style building with two floors and orange tiles that look as though they are bricks. These are mixed in with white tiles and on top is an octagonal tower which make the building very memorable. In the times of its operation, the waiting room for continental routes was always packed with people. To celebrate this time in Mojiko Retro, a 2 meter large fugu (puffer fish) lantern as well as various other lights are set up around the area.
