Kanda Used Book Festival
With over 170 used bookstores in a relatively small area, Jimbocho in Kanda is a book lover’s paradise. Every year, a book festival to rival book festivals sees bookstores placing bookshelves opposite their storefronts on the sidewalks of Yasukuni street, the main thoroughfare in the area. This corridor of books is itself a sight worth seeing first hand, but there are also book-related events, including a book fair with particularly rare and valuable books, and a number of workshops.
Those keen on piling up plenty of reading materials can have books delivered to their doorstep (domestic only) instead of carrying heavy tomes home by themselves.
