About “Library of Things”

At the library of the Japan Foundation Bangkok, we have decided to start lending “things” other than books. With the aim of providing services that going beyond the traditional role of a library by allowing everyone to easily borrow “things” that we believe will contribute to a better understanding of Japanese culture. *This service is available for library members only.

Make your own sushi!

We believe that there are many people who love Japanese food, especially sushi and would like to try making it themselves. However, they may not know how to make it and find it’s difficult to begin. Here is some good news for you! From now on, you can borrow a sushi maker from the library. Why not borrow a sushi maker and try making sushi at home?

In addition, the library has a wide selection of books on sushi, so it would be great to borrow some books along with the sushi maker to deepen your understanding of sushi.
