Kyoto Prefectural Library Reviews
大震災により平成になってから建て替えられていますが、いまだ明治末期の創立時のレトロな雰囲気の残る建物でした。特に側面の建物名称が古書体なのがおもしろかったです。 more »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.
琵琶湖疏水と平安神宮に囲まれたこの辺りは京都でも指折りの文芸エリアだ。京都市美術館、国立近代美術館、そして府立図書館が並んでいる。伝統産業ふれあい館に動物園も加えれば情操教育に最適なゾーンだともいえる。よく知られているように日本初の公立図書館である京都集書院が前身。明治期に建築され長らく使用されたが、阪神大震災による打撃で2001年に新築。ただ、ファザード部分は明治期の建築が残されているという。 more »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.
Most of books and other documents are in Japanese. You can find many valuable books about the history of Kyoto and Japan. Its facilities is quite new and modern. This is a great place for reading and learning because it is very quiet. The staff are always friendly and helpful.
Good place to be to enjoy a quite afternoon for reading
