"Your Future, Your Future Self - A journey into picture books with Satoshi Kako," which was held in spring 2010 at Miraikan, will be held at the Ishikawa Prefecture Children Activity Center.
Located alongside the Sai River, which runs through Kanazawa City, the Center is also within close proximity of Kenroku-en (a famous Japanese garden that dates back to the seventeenth century). Placing great importance on hands-on activities, the Center strives to promote the healthy development of children. The place offers opportunities to gain a deeper understanding of a variety of subjects, from traditional culture to advanced science and technology. The Center also boasts a planetarium, which is quite popular.
