As you walk down Book Street, with bookshelves on both sides, you will arrive at a space called Bookshelf Theatre. As the name suggests, it is a theater with bookshelves. There are bookshelves along the walls in Book Street leading up to this point, but the bookshelves in the Bookshelf Theater are of a different caliber. The bookshelves are eight meters high and are set into the walls surrounding the high-ceilinged space.
Everyone who saw the huge bookshelves looked up in unison. They looked up as if a UFO had appeared in the sky above them and took pictures with their smartphones. Then, as if remembering, they begin to look at what kind of books are on the shelves. The bookshelves are supposed to play a supporting role and the books are supposed to be the main attraction, but it is interesting to note that the relationship between the two is reversed here. The huge bookshelves are the main attraction here.
This area is called the Bookshelf Theater. Rather than having visitors to the Kadokawa Culture Museum read the books on display, the main focus of this area is a projection mapping show based on the concept of "playing with books and communing with books" using the bookshelves as a backdrop. That is probably why it is named "theater."
