A kaleidoscope of color in a building that looks as it did in the past.

This building is a reminder of the area in front of Shirahama Station that once flourished as a pearl market. A kaleidoscope of images adorns the original complex of amusement arcades, restaurants and souvenir shops.

Shinju Building

The Pearl Building is a commercial center that still stands in front of Shirahama Station. It used to be crowded with honeymooners, tourists and local people, and the special pearl products from Shirahama were very popular. In the near future, the building, which now retains only a few vestiges of days gone by, a new generation of owners will soon take over the building, and they are expected to revive the formerly bustling atmosphere.
