It was designed by Shinichiro Okada, who designed the Meiji Seimei Kan and other buildings and represented the Taisho and early Showa periods.

Built in 1924, it is also called Hatoyama Goten or Otowa Palace.

The exterior and the Adams-style reception room are British in style, but with Japanese-style sliding doors and other features, giving it an open space like a Japanese house despite its Western style.
