Gion Kobu Hanamachi Library

Hey everyone! This week I visited the Gion Kobu Hanamachi Library to see what I could find.

Excellently decorated, the building, as well as the rest of the SIM, does give the impression that you’re in the floating world. The rooms are large and open with a few bookcases lining the walls on either side of the front door.

When you click on them they offer you notecards from which you can read their books. Some topics included Japanese stories, east religions and reference. In the middle of the room are nice chairs and rugs where you can sit down, relax, and read.

Further in there is a smaller room with children’s illustrated books. These are objects you can zoom in on and click on the pages to turn them.

There are also other rooms you can move to where you can do activities like sewing kimonos and washing laundry. There wasn’t anyone present in the SIM but I think it is one that is well crafted and has potential to be very active.
See you all next time!
