Japan's oldest assembly room. For 64 years from 1905 to 1969, Kyōto prefectural assemblies had been held here. In 2015, it was renovated to bring it back into its original state to mark the 110th anniversary. However, all of the photographs used to restore it were in black and white, so the red carpet and the green seats set in a arched shape were chosen by guess. It's a mystery what the actual colors.
