bookstore shopping in tokyo

  • About the author EB

As you may or may not know, I recently returned from a trip to Tokyo. While there, I of course needed to visit some bookstores!

John Grogan representing!

This bookstore, located in Shinbashi, had a small English-language section. The one Harper Perennial book included? Doris Lessing’s Alfred & Emily. Good choice.

Awesome Japanese take on One Hundred Years of Solitude, which we publish here in the states.

Less awesome (in my opinion) Japanese take on Brave New World

A random selection (love that Lolita cover!)

There was also a Japanese dog version of Maus called Waushwitz, but we don’t need to get into that.

Who else feels the need to visit bookstores on vacation no matter where they go?
