It is the only wooden architecture in Gajoen and has been designated as Tangible Cultural Property by Tokyo.
The name, "Hyakudan (100 steps) Kaidan (Stairs)" is derived of 99 steps of stairs which connect seven rooms that were used for the dinner or feast before.
The details of the walls, ceilings, pillars of each room were all made by prominent artists at the beginning of Showa-era, which overwhelm people visiting there.
Each room full of Japanese-style paintings or sculptures gives us a sense of beauty in Edo-era, alluring us to the olden days of Japan.
Also, there is a gorgeous bathroom with Japanese garden patterns, which is said to cost one hundred million yen. ($841,700.00 *the present currency)
