Kyoto Botanical Garden "Kinoko Bunko"

I think the time to read books at home has increased because of the prolonged coronavirus.

The declaration of a state of emergency will be lifted on Thursday, September 30, and facilities in Kyoto prefecture will resume their operations.

The Kyoto Botanical Garden, which was closed, will open on Friday, October 1.

In connection with "Autumn for Reading", we introduce the "Heian no Sato Kodomo Bunko Kinoko no Ie (A library of Mushroom House for children) " in the park.

When you open the white door of the outdoor library called "Kinoko Bunko", we will find many picture books and children's books!

It is a popular spot in the park where you can enjoy books surrounded by seasonal plants in a space like another world.

"Kinoko no Ie (A library of Mushroom House for children)" has also developed a small "Kinoko no Ie" that comes with an antiseptic solution.

Don't you think it's so cute that it's like a parent and child mushroom?

It seems that this autumn, the lively voices of parents and their children will return to the Kinoko Bunko.

Of course, adults can also sit on the bench and browse.


Fujibakama, one of the seven autumn herbs, and Mizu-Aoi are at their best season in the park.

In Kyoto Prefecture, the Mizu-Aoi is on the verge of extinction, and the Fujibakama is thought to have been extinct before.

Fujibakama were discovered about 20 years ago in Oharano, Nishikyo Ward, and is being raised with care in Kyoto.

We may also be able to see the butterfly "Asagimadara", which is attracted by the scent of flowers.

At present, 20 varieties of cosmos, a typical autumn flower, are planted in the park.

From now on, it starts to bloom little by little, and the best time to see it is from the middle of October to the end of November.

The Kyoto Botanical Garden boasts a large site of 240,000 square meters.

It is a recommended spot if you say "I want to go out, but I don't want to be crowded".
