Katsura Bunko

Katsura Bunko was started in 1958 by Momoko Ishii, a notable writer, editor and translator of children’s books, at her own home.  Hand in hand with other three Bunkos, it grew to be Tokyo Children’s Library, and Katsura Bunko itself is now operated as its branch. Part of the house was turned into a gallery and archive, which are, along with Ms. Ishii’s study, now open to public, showing the collection of award-winning Japanese children’s books, the collection of Shigeo Watanabe (a children’s book writer and translator), and of British illustrator Edward Ardizzone.  Documents on Bunkos and reading promotion activities all over Japan are also kept here.
