Library Tour: The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur

The Japan Foundation, Kuala Lumpur (JFKL) is gateway to Japan! The Japan Foundation is Japan’s only institution responsible to carry out comprehensive international cultural exchange programs throughout the world. With the aim of deepening and cultivating mutual understanding between the people of Japan and other countries/regions, the various activities conducted and information services create more opportunities for people-to-people interactions. A comfortable library is set up with the collection that features a wide range of materials on Japan including books, magazines, comics, music CD’s and DVD’s. This place also provides extensive resources and information to the people in Malaysia who would like to know more about Japan. This library also contains books and resources printed in English and Malay language even though majority of books here are in Japanese form.

Operation Hours:

Tuesday – Friday: 10.30 a.m. – 6.30 p.m.
Saturday: 10.00 a.m. – 6.00 p.m.
Sunday, Monday & Public Holidays: Closed

Address of the Library:

18th Floor, Block B, Northpoint, No. 1 Medan Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

How to get there:

This library is located opposite of the Mid Valley Megamall building connected with bridge. Therefore, any public transport that could reach the mall, could reach this place as well.

The official portal:

Since this library is located at the residence area, you will need to register your name at the security counter at Level M to enter the residence area from Block B. Upon arriving at the 18th floor (library), you will need to ring the door to allow the security guard to open the door for you to enter. Write you name and time in at the counter and place your items at the side compartment available.


The place is maintained well and managed to find many interesting books.



My sister is turning a book lover, alhamdulillah. I am very happy with that. She did way better than the first day, maybe I should drag her to library more often (hehe).


The lil one followed us today, remembered the first time I took him to a library and choose books with him. How excited he was 🙂 Grown up to fast, he chooses his own books now.









Good experience and day well spent
