    Located inside the grounds of the Toyota Sangyo Bunka Center, Kirakutei is a modern Japanese-style building from the late Taisho and early Showa periods. Formerly a restaurant and hotel, many famous guests stayed at Kirakutei, among them politician Korekiyo Takahashi, Prince Takamatsu, and actress Yaeko Mizutani.
    In 1967, Kirakutei was no longer used as a business, and underwent renovations in 1982. Since being relocated to its present location, Kirakutei has been used to host tea ceremonies and other public events.
    With the rapid rise of urbanization in recent years, Kirakutei continues to represent this style of Japanese architecture as a place of historical significance.
