    Get ready to be completely overwhelmed by the scrapping section if you're into journaling. Have your wallet ready.

    'Reasons to go outside' is the best book they sell. The book profiles every park in the city. It's awesome.

    Are you a fan of manga, anime or Japanese-language books, music, DVDs or magazines? This bookstore is LOADED with great stuff. Within Uwajimaya (store), it couldn't be more convenient!

    There are some great Japanese knitting books here, with great photos. You don't have to know Japanese to follow the patterns; they are in a symbolic language that anyone can learn to follow.
