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.

Kyoto Main Areas
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.
