Kanrantei is a large Momoyama-style tea house overlooking the bay. This elaborately ornate structure was originally built in Kyoto and move here in the 17th century. It served as a place for tea ceremonies and moon-viewing parties.

One of its rooms has sliding doors covered in gold and calligraphy artworks hung on the walls. Visitors can sip a bowl of whisked green tea, enjoying a sweeping view of the bay. Behind the tea house is a small museum that displays armors, weapons, tools and other artefacts.
