    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Sakyo-ku Okazakihoshojicho 126 Okazaki Park Uchi

    Incredibly small enclosures for everything. Sad elephants. Over cramped spaces. These animals deserve so much better

    Kyoto Kyoto-shi Sakyo-ku Jodojinishidacho 74
    This fee-charing, study room-style private library is located a short distance west of the intersection between Imadegawa-dori Street and Shirakawa-dori Street. At the reception counter, choose an open seat; you then pay in accordance with the amount of time you stay. Customers are free to bring in their own food and drink but the library also offers free green tea and sells coffee and black tea at low prices. Customers can freely read the books lining the library's shelves and, excluding a portion of the collection, borrow books as well. You can reserve a seat on Sundays and holidays. Regardless of the day of the week, the library is happily open until midnight. The library is a great place to study or take a break.

    NHKの72時間の放送を見て、興味があったので訪問。僅かな料金でお茶が付き、勉強や読書に勤しむ他の利用者に囲まれていると、自然と自分も勉強したい気分になる。

  • Kyoto Prefectural Library

    Kyoto Kyoutoshi Sakyou-ku Okazakiseishoujichou
    Located about a 10-minute walk from the Higashiyama Station on the Tozai Subway Line, this public library was founded in 1898, and was preceded by the Shushoin, the first structure of its type in which a collection of books were preserved and available for public perusal. The current three-story brick structure was designed by the architect Takeda Goichi and built in 1909 when moved from its original site, and continued to be used as the main hall until the Han-Shin Awaji Earthquake disaster. The facade only was preserved thereafter and can still be seen at that time on the currently completed new building.

Kyoto Main Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
