It is built in Homon Park located north from the center of Oyama town.
It was originally built as the house of Wada Toyoji (1861-1924) who was Fuji Boseki President, built at the current Sumida Ward Tokyo.
After death in accordance to will it was transferred to present location and named Homon Kaikan, it is used as welfare for Oyama townsfolk and employees of Fuji Boseki.
At 2004 it was donated to Oyama town, and the following year it was designated as registered tangible cultural property of Japan.
Apart from that within the park there is the Homon Park main entrance, Homon Kaikan Japanese-style house, European-style house, Homon Park European-style house, Homon Park Wadakun Itokuhi, Homon Park fountain spring, and many sights to see.

It seems that it is used for movie sets
In movies such as The Professor's Beloved Formula, Teiichi no Kuni
It seems that famous people such as Eri Fukatsu and Masaki Suda also visited.
Originally it was the residence of Mr. Wada, who prospered the paper industry in Shizuoka.
It seems that what was in Tokyo has been moved to Oyamamachi.
It seems that the Western-style building was an executive training center.
Both are not just mansion,
A wonderful building with a craftsman's heart in every detail.
I want to live in a house like this.
A very quaint building with a world view like Ghibli.
Isn't it irresistible for architecture lovers?
According to the staff who happened to be there, it is open to the public once in a while.
It's a pity that it seems to be irregular due to the corona damage.
The garden is beautiful and the scenery is good
Isn't it good for walks, dates, and sightseeing?

I learned that Wada's residence was filmed in the drama "Rika ~ Reverse ~", so I searched on Google Map.
I heard that it was Oyama and mistaken it for Oyama City, Tochigi Prefecture, but with the Oyama Town Film Commission, which started operation in 2002, it is 90 minutes away from the Tokyo IC, so it's a convenient death.

Please tell me at the information center in front of Suruga-Oyama Station.
I walked around. The slope in front of the park is a little steep, but I was walking for rehabilitation, so it was a very good exercise. The park is in good condition and the historic buildings are attractive.
It feels good because you can see the city and mountains.
The season of autumn leaves has passed a little, but I think the heyday is beautiful. I should have brought my lunch. There is a supermarket along the way, so you may prepare it there. On the way back, the train time was approaching, so I regret that I couldn't buy the wasabi monaka that was sold at the shop near the station.
This time, the staff at the information center worried me because I was walking with a cane for rehabilitation, and waited for me to come back in front of the information center. In addition to being guided to a wonderful place, we also give consideration to your physical condition. I really felt like tears. I would like to express my sincere gratitude here. It seems that there are still other attractive places and delicious foods, so I will come back again when I feel a little more energetic.

You can learn about the history of Oyama-cho in a good place to take a leisurely walk.
I enter the house where the people who developed the Japanese economy spent, and while looking at various books, I can go back in time, so sometimes I go out alone.

The building is also a historic building and is spectacular.
The park was also western and calm, and I was able to relax.
