1歳の娘を連れて家族で来館。 重厚感のある建物に世界中の様々な絵本があり読み聞かせもあり、それでいて全て無料という素晴らしい空間です。 中庭でカフェや弁当を食べられてほっこり。 しかも空いてます、おすすめ。 Visited with 1 year old daughter. Vriety of kids books from all over the world in gorgeous old building. Cafe time in garden is nice. Not so clouded. Free of charge.

This building deserves some time and slower appreciation than we were able to give it. Amazing facility and of interest if you appreciate the history of architecture. IF not, get thee to the Shitamachi Museum

Thank chickamu
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old
Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa.
Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit
a variety of different museums and galleries. At
Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the
grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed
alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at
the end of the year, when many people go on shopping
