After passing through a space filled with tanka poems by Machi Tawara, I found myself in an area called Book Street. Although named "Book Street," it looked like an ordinary library. Under the supervision of Seigo Matsuoka, director of the Kadokawa Culture Museum, 25,000 books that are useful for reading about the world are arranged by context.

According to Seigo Matsuoka, there are nine "contexts for reading the world. The nine contexts are "The Identity of Japan," "Into the Forest of Memory," "Brain, Mind, and Media," "World History and Culture," "Work and Life," "Full of Images," "Tractable Books," "Playing with Individuality," and "Between Man and Woman," which may seem obvious, but it is not.

It is easy to enjoy Book Street to the fullest without knowing the contexts. Just reach out and pick up one of the books lined up there. If you reach for the "Tractable Books," section, you will find a math book; if you reach for the "Full of Images" section, you will find a collection of photographs. This is a wonderful space where you can freely pick up and read the books on the shelves. It is a great place for book lovers.
