Art Museum

Quietly sitting in the middle of the Yatsugatake forest with its characteristic mountain hut appearance is Ehonmura. This is the first library in Japan dedicated to picture books with a ‘Story House’ where you can freely read picture books, and an ‘Art House’ with a display of original picture book images and a picture book corner just for grown-ups. The idea is to bring the world of picture books and the warmth of the wooded surroundings into the hearts of children from 0 to 100 years old. Workshops and puppet shows are held on the stage decorated with cute looking pictures. And in the adjoining cafe visitors can enjoy a relaxing cup of original herb tea.

Reviewed:2016/08/24 雨の中、偶然。
強い雨の中、予定変更を強いられ、たまたま近くにあったえほん村を訪れました。始めは2歳児から500円の入村料は高いかなと思いましたが、いざ入ってみると、流石、日本最初の絵本専門図書館。国内外の様々な絵本があり、子どもたちは夢中になって手にとっていました。家具、調度品は、造形作家の松村太三郎氏(村長)によるもので、とても落ちついた空間になっています。比較的、品のある家族の方々が多く訪れており、とてもい...

          Yamanashi prefecture is the proud home of one of Japan's most celebrated icons: Mount Fuji. Although the mountain straddles both Yamanashi and Shizuoka, the most breathtaking views of Fuji-san can be seen from the Fuji Five Lakes north of the mountain in Yamanashi prefecture. The plethora of outdoor activities in and around the lakes all have the benefit of the country's highest mountain as their backdrop, and we can assure you that it is an unforgettable sight.
