Military Brothel Exhibition Hall


This museum examines the rarely mentioned subject of officially-sanctioned prostitution to entertain military personnel. Euphemistically known as a 'Special Teahouse', the brothel was in operation between 1951 and 1990.

There's a pleasant cafe on site plus, next door, a branch of stylish fast-food diner Brunch.
