Describing a building in Tsu City

The most beautiful building in my hometown is Hyakugo Bank Headquarters. It is in the centre of Tsu City in Mie prefecture.

It was built in 1968. A past building had become old, it was built newly. In the 11th floor building, at that time, it was the highest building in Mie prefecture.

Tsu City was bombed to the U. S. Army in World War 2. There weren’t any outmoded buildings in the built-up area because of burnt ruins. If it didn’t encounter war damage, the castle might have been the most famous building.

You can enter to the ground floor because it is a bank window in this building. You cannot go up to the 10th floor and the rooftop because you aren’t the people related to the bank. I guess that view from the rooftop is wonderful. For the east of the building, you can see the Ise-bay and the centrair airport. For the west of it, you can see the expressway and wide rice fields.

There is this building along the route 23.
If you go to Ise Jingu Shrine from Nagano prefecture, you will able to see this building.
