Yusuhara Town Library

This may be the most beautiful library in the world
Yusuhara is a town of a few thousand people, However, the town is in a class apart, as it is home to six buildings designed by the world-famous architect Kengo Kuma, who also designed the stadium for the 2020 Olympics.
The Kumo-no-ue Library or “library above the clouds” is perhaps the most magical and envy-inducing for book lovers. The structure was built in 2018, and you can still smell the soothing scent of it many cedar beams. The airy library is open to book-lovers and visitors, and each surface seems to glow with polish. The ceiling is constructed to resemble an upside down forest, with countless beams that cross and re-cross, creating layers of light and shadow.

Visited and like the cheese cake & coffee :-))
