Travel Guide - Kanda Second-hand Books Area

InformationInformation

Kanda Jinbo-cho is the largest second-hand books area in Japan. This area is called "Kanda Koshoten-gai (Kanda Second-hand Books Town)", and there are approximately 180 second-hand book stores with a total storage of more than 10 million books gathered here. You can buy the wide range of specialized books that cannot be found in other places.
This book store area was formed 130 years ago when a number of universities, such as Meiji University, Chuo University, Senshu University, and Nihon University, were established around here in the 1880s. Then many book stores were also opened here at the same time for the students. Luckily, these book stores weren't damaged during the World War II, and you can still find a variety of old books in this area.
