Kaiseikan used to be the district office and the Fukushima Prefecture Development Office of during the time of the the Asaka Land Development Works. Local carpenters constructed this building in the so-called 'Giyofu' architectural style, which was a form of mimicked Western architecture prevalent at the time. It was built merely on the basis of woodblock paintings and information obtained about western buildings through hearsay. The building was later also used as a prefectural agriculture school, and served as accommodation and a place to rest for the Meiji Emperor during his two Imperial tours around Tohoku.
