Tokyo Metropolitan Tama Library 東京都立多摩図書館

2-2-26 Izumicho Kokubunji-shi Tokyo

Family-friendly fun, movie screenings, and more magazines than you can count

Situated next to the Musashi Kokubunji Park is the Tokyo Metropolitan Tama Library. The library houses around 17,000 magazines in its “Tokyo Magazine Bank,” the first of its kind in Japan. You can freely browse their collection, which features everything from mainstream weekly magazines to high-end design publications.

Beyond magazine archiving, the library’s other main purpose is to encourage a love of literature in young adults and children. Inside you’ll find a large section dedicated to young adult literature, and a “reading aloud to children corner” where you can enjoy reading along with your children without worrying about being disruptive to other visitors. The library occasionally runs film screenings too. For more information on what films are coming up, ask at the front desk.
