Tokorozawa Sakura Town, the base of Cool Japan Forest Project, is a brand new cultural complex that aims to promote Japanese pop culture. It is located in Tokorozawa city, Saitama prefecture which is only about an hour from central Tokyo by train. Tokorozawa Sakura Town produced by Kadokawa Corporation, a leading publishing company in Japan, and Tokorozawa city has a musuem, an anime hotel, libraries, offices, restaurants, and a shrine. One of the biggest attractions would be Kadokawa Culture Museum and its magnificent architecture is designed by Kengo Kuma, famous Japanese architect. Due to the spread of COVID-19, the opening date was pushed back to 6th November, 2020 from 17th July. This would be a brief report of Kadokawa Culture Museum’s pre-opening.
Arrived at Tokorozawa Sakura Town after walking about 10 minutes from Higashi-Tokorozawa station.
Tokorozawa Sakura Town would be a great spot to enjoy Japanese pop culture, artworks, and Kengo Kuma’s magnificent architecture. Fascinating attractions including anime hotel, modern shrine, manga library, and museum at this artistic town are very inspiring. Look forward to the grand opening!
