As an active photograph critic and historian for over 30 years, unintentionally, Iizawa Kotaro has collected an enormous amount of photograph books. From his huge collection, 5000 of his books are to be shared, on the bookshelves at MEGUTAMA diner.
The books are carefully placed in order from the 19th century to current, in historic order categorized by photographers. It would be our pleasure if you can enjoy and discover the fun of photographs and be interested, and inspired through the beautiful photo books. You can explore the library freely, but please be cautious handling the precious books.
Photography related events are held periodically.
