Kyoto Prefectural Library (京都府立図書館)

Library

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.

          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.
