Kanda Used Book Street



Jimbocho is known as one of the largest bookshop districts in the world; it is also called an antique-bookshop district. There are about 150 bookshops specializing in antiques, most of them located near the Jimbocho Intersection,
where Yasukuni-dori Street crosses Hakusan-dori Street. You can find a variety of books when strolling through the district. While Jimbocho is considered an area for antique books, there are a surprising number of shops with new books, too. Yet these are slightly different from ordinary bookshops; they choose their stock differently, and competition is fierce. A one-minute walk from the A6 Exit of Jimbocho Station brings you to the antique bookshop district.
