  • It has been rebuilt since the great earthquake, but it was still a building with a retro atmosphere at the end of the Meiji era. Especially, it was interesting that the building name of the side was an old typeface.

  •  Surrounded by Lake Biwa and Heian Jingu Shrine, this area is one of the best literary areas in Kyoto. The Kyoto City Museum of Art, the National Museum of Modern Art, and the Prefectural Library are lined up. It can be said that it is the most suitable zone for the emotional education if the zoo is added to the traditional industry fureaikan. As is well known, Kyoto Shushoin, japan's first public library, was its predecessor. It was built in the Meiji period and was used for a long time, but it was newly built in 2001 due to the blow from the Great Hanshin Earthquake. However, it is said that the building of the Fazzard part is left in the Meiji period.
