Shibuya Publishing Booksellers




The staff at this ultra-hip Shibuya bookshop are more interested in encouraging new discoveries than hawking the latest bestseller. Magazines and books, both new and used, are arranged according to theme, meaning that you might find a philosophical tract alongside some manga or art books. Though the selections are predominantly Japanese-language, Shibuya Publishing Booksellers also stocks a few English titles – and it's a rewarding place to browse even if you can't read most of what you're looking at. Added bonus: they stay open until midnight, too.
