As well as the architecture, the cool cafe and shop, there's very often interesting events on the ground floor, and exhibitions on the top floors. From my experience they welcome "foreigners" and will show you around etc.

....particularly if there are some exhibitions on. Good example of modern architecture. Visit this place while at Jozenji Dori.

If you are one whom loves the Architecture & Structural aspect of buildings in different countries, this is somewhere worth going to take a look but not for the book worms as most of the books are in Japanese.

With a library over 2 floors, two studio floors and other common areas this modern building is quite an attraction for the young ones. An art exhibition was on on one of the studio floor during my visit.
Architecture wise, this building appears very pleasing and I guess that may be one of the reason why youngsters are attracted to it.

Not sure why this is a listed attraction, it's a library that's mostly glass. It's out of the way and not overly appealing to look at. Redeeming quality, some cool stuff in the gift shop.
