This is an area where you can find all kinds of antique books. There are shops with new books as well.
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.
