The Building

The Chokkura Plaza community hall is located near the Hoshakuji station. The Plaza provides for an assembly hall and exhibition gallery in a site already containing an abandoned rice storage house constructed in Ooya stone.

A round-about is located at the west end of the site and its east exit is closed.
