    Japanese mega bookstore with 3 floors. Large selection of manga on the top floor. Very relaxing vibe and there's a cafe with decent food and drinks.

    A little crowded with narrow aisles. Line moved pretty quickly but was long. Merchandise had wide variance in pricing. Good selection but eclectic.

    This is the place to get your imported Japanese magazines, such as Popeye and Brutus. Other newsstands in Manhattan do carry them, but not at these prices! You'll pay ⅓ or less here. 📚
