Kijo Ehon no Sato - Kijo Picture Book Village-

Kijo Picture Book Village is located in KIjo-cho, Ishikawachi, in the beautiful mountain side of Miyazaki Prefecture in Japan.

There are 15,000 picture books from all over the world in the library. We have a Playhouse for family audiences, cafe, Bookshop. and cottages for use as an accommodation.

The Village holds exhibitions, workshops, music concerts, theatres, summer camp and many more interesting events every year.
Another unique project is `Green Cradle Bank' in which people deposit seeds of trees and flowers to preserve woods and nature.

Kijo Picture book Village is a place to encounter books, wild flowers, plants, small creatures, the wind, the stars and the darkness of night. We would be very pleased if we can encourage children to cultivate their sense of wonder in the beautiful nature surrounding Kijo.
It is a magical place for everybody to enjoy a great day out or retreat.
