Other Public Institution/Facility

Located approximately a 20-minute drive from Tokai-Hokuriku Expressway’s Gifu-Kakamigahara Interchange, this facility complex consists of the city’s central library, the Multicultural Plaza, Community Activity Exchange Center, an exhibition gallery and other facilities. Able to hold a maximum of 900,000 books and with 910 chairs, one of the facilities largest features is the wooden lattice roof, and the library is filled with an openness unlike the image of previous libraries. Globes are hung in each area, making it a new kind of library where you can enjoy yourself even from just one seat position.

          Tucked away in the very center of Japan, Gifu prefecture houses mountains, old towns, and one of Japan’s greatest hot springs, Gero Onsen. A tour of the prefecture’s traditional architecture will take you from the mountain-enveloped wooden streets of Takayama to the mountain village of Shirakawago, where visitors can explore 250-year-old thatched roofed houses known as gassho-zukuri.
