Characteristics of the Minato Library
The Minato Library is the central library of Minato City, located near the Zojyo-ji in Shiba Park in a very quiet environment. It was established in 1979 as the 30-year anniversary project of the administration of Minato City. There are many city administrative-related materials and local history and information materials in the Reference Material Area. Furthermore, it has a good collection of audiovisual materials, such as CDs and videos. Because many foreigners live in Minato City, this library has an abundant variety of foreign books and children's picture storybooks.
