The Hiramatsu Villa was located at a corner of Dogashima Spa. Jinshiro Hiramatsu was a banker in Tokyo. He did not quite enjoy the cohlera epidemic in Tokyo in 1886. Consequently, he bought the site of old Naraya Hotel in Dogashima Spa. Pulling water from Shirabe Waterfall, he made a beautiful garden and built a houe with a teahouse and study surrounding it. This is the site of present-day Taiseikan Hotel.
