11Vaulted Ceiling

When you go up from the first floor to the second floor, you will find totally different atmosphere there. The first floor has a family-friendly atmosphere, but the second floor offers a quiet space where you can read in peace. Vaulted ceiling creates an open space inside the building. The ceiling is as high as 12 meters and it is supported by 25 pillars (30cm in diameter). The bookshelves and the reading space are not partitioned. You may feel as though you are reading in a tranquil forest. We hope you enjoy reading here. You see the color of the sky through the windows and sometimes you see the soft glow of sunset. We hope you can also enjoy admiring the beauty of nature during those moments.
