Maruzen Bookstore’s new Tokyo store

On Sept. 14, 2004, Maruzen Bookstore opened their new Tokyo store right in front of Tokyo Station near the Marunouchi North Exit.

It’s a beautiful store with many shelves of foreign/imported books and magazines. There’s also a gallery space and famed photographer Daido Moriyama was the first to exhibit there.

The old Nihonbashi store will close in Oct. temporarily until 2007 since the building will be rebuilt. During the interim, they will have a temporary Nihonbashi store near the old location.

The new Tokyo store (Marunouchi Honten) will prove to be more convenient for many of us.
