In 2021, the summer vacation campaign “Let’s play with Hyakkaji!” for the publication of “General Encyclopedia Poplardia 3rd Edition” was very popular. In response to requests from the holding museum, it was renewed in response to the “Poplardia 3rd Edition”. Aiming to convey to children the “fun to research” and the appeal of encyclopedias, we have started distributing them to libraries that wish to host the event through a special website.
