About Himeji City Museum Of Literature, Himeji

The beautiful complex was designed and built by Pritzker Prize winner Tadao Ando who built it during 1998- 1991. The place is home to a total of three buildings out of which one is entirely traditional with a Japanese garden in it. The other two are fairly modern and represents the designer’s signature style he is known for. The place is open for tourists, though it is among the less visited destinations in the city. The design of the house include sloping areas with nice terrace and ponds that are great to sit by and wonder. It also provides nice sight of the Himeji castle. The place is easily accessible by bus. One of the buildings has a petite lovely cafe on the top floor to eat in. Great to capture the essence of Japanese tradition!

  • A Tadao Ando experience with a beautiful accessible Japanese private garden annexed to the Museum.

  • Good

  • 姫路文学館の南館にある水屋珈琲は居心地のよいお店です♪駐車場も無料なので、ぜひ来館の折、立ち寄ってみてください。

  • 建物が素晴らしい。常設の南館も充実しています。喫茶店と、小さな子供が絵本を読むスペースが1階に。2階にも数は少ないですが、大人から子供までが読む、厳選された蔵書があります。

  • 改装なって以前より見ごたえがあった。 お城だけやなくてこちらも寄ってみては。
