For small, rural towns in Japan with no public library, residents rely on a mobile library service provided by the nearest city with a public library.
In Matsushiro, just outside Nagano, the mobile library calls once a week on Saturdays, from the main library in Nagano city.
To get to Matsushiro, take the Nagano Dentetsu Yashiro Line train to Matsushiro Station from Nagano. Alternatively, take the more frequent local bus from Nagano Station to Matsushiro from bus platform #3 outside the station.
