About the teahouse
Prominent architect Emori Nahiko designed the teahouse on the centennial celebration of Okada Mokichi’s birth. The name comes from the Japanese letter “百” (one hundred), which is divided into two parts, “一” and “白.” These respectively mean “one” and “white,” and together read “ippaku.”
Rustic in style, the teahouse has a table- style seating area in the front, and small hermitage-style rooms and a large reception-style room in the rear.
