The building was designed by Heizo So, who also designed Naniwa Bridge (Sakai-suji) and Kunijima Purification Plant. The building features a rooftop clock tower, bay and round windows designed after a clock pendulum, and seven sculptures of eagles above the entrance (two locations) and on the show windows (five locations). In 1997, it was designated as a Registered Tangible Cultural Property by the Agency for Cultural Affairs.
