Site of the Meiji Kaido
Location: 3-14 Ginza, Chuo-Ku

The Meiji Kaido was a lecture hall built in 1881 on the initiative of Yukichi Fukuzawa ond designed by his relative Hisakichi Fujimoto. The two-story wooden structure mimicked Western architecture but had a traditional tile roof. The floor area was about 620 square meters.
The building was erected at a time when there were only a few proper lecture halls in the city, including the Mita Public Speaking Hall built by Fukuzawa. Lectures and speeches had usually been presented in large spaces designed for other purposes such as meeting rooms for rent, theatres or restaurants,and the Meiji Kaido was designed to replace those venues.
The explanation accompanying the brocade picture reproduced here says,"The main hall will hold three thousand people, the banquet room has 200 seats, and with its lecture room and office and other splendid rooms it is indeed the finest hall in Tokyo. "At that time the Meiji Kaido was the only lecture hall in the city equipped with a dining area, and it was frequently used for political gatherings and various speeches and events. Notable events included the inauguration ceremony for the Constitutional Reform Party in 1882, and the first Western-style ball to be held in Japan in 1883, before the famed balls at the Rokumeikan.
Ownership passed from Fukuzawa to the Ministry of Agriculture and Commerce at the end of 1882,and from 1884 it was used as the Welfare Hall until sale to a private owner in 1890. The building was destroyed by fire in the aftermath of the 1923 Great Kanto Earthquake.
