    Great selection of Japanese magazines, which are worth checking out regardless of whether or not you can read them since Japanese magazines serve so many different niches.

    Kinokuniya was originally a lumber and charcoal dealer in Yotsuya. After the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the business was moved westward to Shinjuku where it was re-fashioned into a book store.

    Coming here made me want to learn how to read japanese. Also, to make more money because this place can be pricey.

    It's hot, stuffy and cramped with no AC. Don't expect the shitty employees to help you look for anything specific because they don't know their own merchandise. Good books though.
