Kadokawa Culture Museum – The Endless Library In Japan 1 Stimulating Oasis For Book Geeks To Conquer

Kadokawa Culture Museum

The Kadokawa Culture Museum is an enthralling synthesis of design, literature, and art. The library has a spectacular light show and over 50,000 books. The newly opened Kadokawa Musashino Museum was designed by world-renowned architect Kengo Kuma in cooperation with Kadokawa Publishing. This unusually shaped structure was created to resemble a rock floating on water. The building’s sculptured exterior is a stunning mosaic of 20,000 granite titles that were painstakingly cut into unique triangle shapes and stacked together like polygons on a 3D model.

With its intimidating, monolithic exterior design, it unquestionably commands attention in Tokorozawa’s otherwise unremarkable suburban area. The Kadokawa Museum’s eye-catching exterior isn’t the only thing it can brag about. The interior contains a diverse range of contents, including a remarkable library with a magnificent light show, an art gallery, and a museum, all of which combine to create a one-of-a-kind experience.

The section known as Edit Town begins on the fourth floor. This area is said to be constructed to resemble a town populated by books. Visitors can learn about a variety of topics by browsing through the 9 different categories. The museum’s designs are carried over into this area as well. With colorfully covered books hanging from the ceiling and Video screens that have naturally integrated into the bookshelves, your eyes will be in for a reward no matter which direction you stare.

Another segment of the Kadokawa Culture Museum on the top floor is dedicated to the history of Kadokawa Shoten, including the story of board member Genyoshi Kadokawa as well as the heritage of the Musashino area. Kadokawa Publication is well-known for their manga, and there is no doubt that this site has its own manga collection. The Manga & Light Novel Database, located on the first floor, contains a wide variety of manga, including the manga variant of the Neon Genesis Evangelion.
