Likely the oldest of the four heritage buildings, the guest house was constructed from wood as a gentler complement to the somewhat solemn appearance of the Red-brick Office.

Together with the Red-brick Dining Hall, the wooden guest house began as part of the club where high-ranking Meiji executives would relax, play leisure games and drink tea. It later became the secondary guest house and a temporary living quarters. A special construction technique reduced the number of support columns and ensured an open-airy interior. Its current appearance is the product of several additions and renovations and the current structure demonstrates a variety of construction techniques. The Wooden Guest House is currently used as an exhibition space, the clean and simple lines create a distinctly Japanese atmosphere ideal for the Japanese tea ceremonies or floral arranging presentations which are also held here so guests can relive the life and culture of days past.

The wooden guest house is connected to the Red-Brick Dining Hall by a long wooden veranda thus forming the main body of the club during the Japanese colonial period. In order to span such a large area of 11m by 7m, a special truss system was developed; three sets of bow beams span the longer side and one set of large beams with two sets of truss beams span the shorter side of the building.

The main building is still the original Japanese wooden structure system but the lobby and dormitory that link the north of the guest house and the Red-Brick Dining Hall incorporate a hybrid structure of wood and brick from a later time. The east and the west annexes are also later additions. The slab on the first floor of the main building has an especially complicated structure worthy of note.
