Aoyagi Bunzoo 青柳文蔵 Aoyagi Bunzo (1761 - 1839)
He was a rich merchant, born in Iwate, Ichinoseki. In Edo, he collected many books and is the founder of
Aoyagi Bunko 青柳文庫 The Aoyagi Library.



- quote -
Aoyagi Bunzo, 青柳文蔵, who was born in the domain of Sendai in 1761, built a fortune in Edo period. He liked reading books and bought many books and then he became a famous book collector. He had lost his child to give over his collections to, and he wanted to utilize his collections for posterity. Therefore he donated about 20000 books and a large amount of money to the domain of Sendai in hope of opening a public library.
The domain of Sendai opened the library with his books, and the library lasted until the Meiji Restoration. It’s said that it was Japan’s first public library and everybody could borrow the books regardless of rank. The collections of books have gradually got scattered and lost.

Now Miyagi Prefectural Library holds about 3600 books of the collections. The Mini Theater SEIRYUKAN, 青柳館 in the library is named after Aoyagi Bunko, 青柳文庫.
Aoyagi, 青柳 is also read ‘seiryu’ in Chinese reading forms.
