Kijo Ehon no sato (Picture Book Village)
Surrounded by lush green mountains, Kijo Ehon no Sato features the Mori no Ehon-Kan, which exhibits both Japanese and foreign picture books and original picture book illustrations, and is both an art gallery and a library.
There is also "Kikori-Kan" where visitors can enjoy books and coffee, "Mori no Kamishibai House" where theater troupes perform, and the "Water Stage" and "Forest Stage" where concerts are held.
Activities such as storytelling, which is popular with children, and other hands-on activities unique to Ehon no Sato are carried out with an emphasis on valuing our relationship with nature.
Surrounded by the great outdoors, children's sensibilities are nurtured.
It is a calming place where you will forget about time.
