This building was constructed in 1908 as a student machine shop for the former Kumamoto Technical College. Kumamoto University acquired this property and used it as a training facility until the completion of a new workshop in 1970. Eleven extremely valuable machines purchased between the Meiji and Taisho periods were maintained in working condition and designated as important cultural properties along with the building. It has also been recognized as a machine heritage site by the Japan Society of Mechanical Engineers.
