“Browse English Language Books in Tokyo”
Reviewed December 9, 2007

The 4th floor of this bookstore has English language books. The selection is not exactly to my tastes (my favorites are the Page One and Eslite in Taipei) - but this floor offers enough variety to keep a bibliophile entertained for awhile. It may be impossible to walk out of here without buying something - I haven't managed to yet.

Your non-bookish friends can keep themselves busy browsing the exntesive fancy pen inventory, eyeglasses, gifts, stationery supplies, etc. In December they have racks of unique Christmas cards, and a large calendar section. My last visit to this store, there were two craftsmen with stalls displaying their wares while they performed their craft (woodworking etc.).

There is also a small cafe on this floor, and the most excellent bathrooms.

The only thing lacking might be more places to sit and review a stack of books - giving the subway tired feet a rest.
