Located in the center of Toyama, it not only professionally displays culture and art, but also plays an important role in creating a new charm of the city. The "TOYAMAKIRARI" building was designed by the famous architect Mr. Kengo Kuma himself, using the ingenious combination of building materials with different characteristics such as Mikage stone (granite produced in Mikage area), glass, aluminum, etc. generally. In addition, the interior of the building is made of wood produced in Toyama prefecture, and the shutters are inclined at different angles, which not only has a sense of warmth, but also fully realizes the openness of the space. The clever use of light and mirrors in the interior presents a sense of penetration, and the stained glass works are in the dark. It looks gorgeous.
