Fusion of library, art museum and natural history museum, Kadokawa Culture Museum
Located in Musashino, where humans and nature have long been living in harmony, Kadokawa Culture Museum (KCM) is a complex of cultural facilities built on a completely new concept
Designed by renowned architect Kengo Kuma. A cultural complex built on the concept of fusing together a library, an art museum, and a natural history museum. Under the supervision of Seigow Matsuoka (editorial engineer), Hiroshi Aramata (natural historian), and Shingo Jinno (researcher of arts and art education), the Museum aspires to be a hub for sharing all genres of art - from mainstream culture to pop culture - in a multifaceted manner. KCM revisits all types of knowledge, transcending the boundaries of art, literature, and natural history. Such a museum has never existed in the world before

Just months after its opening, the Tokyo-area library already has hosted a variety of music and theater performances, with the staggered shelving and metal walkways serving as a backdrop.
