Boil this place down to its very basic and it is essentially just a decent library. But visitors and locals of the city alike tend to freak out over its impressive architectural achievement. The most prominent feature is the transparent glass facade. The vertical steel latticeworks that rise up to the building are naked to the eye and give the structure a very free-flowing impression. You should get somebody knowledgeable at the library to explain all the architectural subtleties to you. Completed in 2001, it was envisioned as an interactive Cultural Center, a goal it has kept quite well. The center has art galleries and special event area. A beautiful zelkova tree line avenue leads up to the library.

Sendai Mediatheque Reviews & Ratings

  • Great place to read and rent books and magazines. Small selection of English and other foreign language books. You can also watch or rent DVD.

  • Unique architecture. The displays are mostly in Japanese so this could limit appreciation from non-Japanese readers.

  • Quiet and good place for reading books and thinking.

  • Love the library floor. It's very comfortable, and I think I could sit here for hours having wonderful books. ❤️

  • Weird but there were some nice pieces of art.
