the mushroom library
Seeing a forest of tree-sized mushrooms could mean two things: you’ve either fallen down the rabbit hole or walked straight into the children’s library at Kyoto Botanical Gardens. If in doubt, try unlatching the doors on the oversized toadstools – if you’re in fact in the botanical gardens, they’ll open up to reveal a packed bookshelf with reading material for all ages. Pretty magical, hey? Thanks to their clever design, the giant fungi keep both books and readers safe and dry through the year. Here's hoping they start sprouting in a field near you.
