Kanazawa Bunko is a samurai library built in the mansion of Rokuuraso Kanazawa (currently Kanazawa Ward, Yokohama City) by Kanezawa Sanetoki of the Hojo clan (Kanazawa Sanetoki) in the middle of the Kamakura era. It is not clear when it was founded, but it is believed to be around the first year of the Kenji era (1275) in the latter years of the real world. The contents of the collection are diverse, including politics, literature, and history, and the collection policy has been passed down to the three generations of Akitoki, Sadaaki, and Sadasho, and the collection has been enhanced.

Mr. Hojo Kanazawa shared his fate with the destruction of the Kamakura Shogunate in 1333, but since then, the library has been managed by the Shomyoji Temple of the adjacent Bodaiji Temple and has reached the modern era. The current Kanazawa Bunko was reconstructed as a facility in Kanagawa Prefecture in 1930, and since 1990, it has been newly dressed as a medieval history museum. The prefectural Kanazawa Bunko will pass on valuable cultural assets that convey various aspects of the Kamakura period to posterity, and will also disclose the results of their research and research through exhibitions and lectures, and will play a role as a base for everyone's lifelong learning. We are working to fulfill our goals.
