This is a lovely old building if you are into architecture of old buildings. Nice miniatures of other buildings in the compound. Right next to Otemon Square where the new library is now. I love the old and the new siting side by side in harmony - so Japan.

I am not sure the history of his library. The building itself is really beautiful. Admission is free. I just stopped by the library. It is small, so we can see entire building easily.

This beautiful Meiji Period western-style building has been preserved in situ in the heart of Hirosaki. It's fun to wander through the rooms and admire the design of this library. One cannot help but wonder what the Japanese of that time must have thought of it.
