The Former Karatsu Bank Head Office (Tatsuno Kingo Memorial Hall) is a traditional building located in Karatsu City, Saga Prefecture. The building used as the head office of the Karatsu Bank, which was one of the predecessors of the current Saga Bank. The current building started construction in 1910 (Meiji 43) and was completed in 1912 (Meiji 45). Kotaro Oshima, who was the president of the bank, asked Tatsuno Kingo from Karatsu to design it. Under the supervision of Tatsuno, Minoru Tanaka, a disciple who had entered the Shimizu Mitsunosuke store (currently Shimizu Corporation), worked on the actual design.
