The neighbourhood of Jimbocho is one of my favourite places for a field trip in Tokyo. Jimbocho is basically a 1km long alignment of used books stores. You can find a bit of everything there, from cheap magazines to pricey collectables a hundred years old. When I visit I mainly look for old books cheap enough to cut up for mail art and the such. I never came home empty handed, but there are good days and bad days, sometimes depending on what the shop keepers are willing to sell you (a bit of a tricky one for me, that's why I only go every six months or so). I will show you last week's catch at Jimbocho in a future blog.
Brushtown in the middle of Booktown?
