Kanazawa Umimirai Library 3 Reviews

It has won some prizes such as '25 most beautiful libraries in the world'. Inside the library with windows like dots on the white wall, the 2nd and 3rd floor are very open for the stairwells. There're three different sizes for the windows and the sun light comes from them beautifully to wrap the room gently.◎To take pictures of the inside, you need to fill in the application and meet some conditions. You can use for free because it's a city library. Open: weekdays 10:00-19:00, holidays 10:00-17:00. Regular holiday: Wednesdays

Kanazawa Umimirai Library has selected as one of the Most Beautiful Public Libraries In The World. The polka-dots on the wall are, in fact, windows. There're as many as 60000 polka-dots!

The novel and beautiful building that has won many prizes such as Good Design Award and the most attractive 20 libraries in the world (the major travel guide in USA) is worth seeing at least once. You can see inside as you like, and after making application, you can take pictures.
