Kanda Used Book Festival 2016


When: 28/10/16 - 06/11/16: 10:00 am - 7:00 pm

Where: Around Jimbocho station, Jimbocho station

For 10 days each October, the book sellers of Tokyo’s Jimbocho “Book Town” district somehow find a way to fill the area with even more used books than usual – considering there are more than 200 book stores in the area, that’s quite an impressive feat! This year sees the annual festival reaching its 57th year as it continues to delight the bibliophiles and bookworms of Tokyo with local stores spreading their wares out into the streets. Whether you want to rummage through well-thumbed magazines, browse the paperbacks and specialist publications, or look out for some rare antiquarian treasure, you can certainly find yourself something here to feed your mind… or at least something that will look great on your coffee table.
