book off in Tokyo 2008/3/17 23:14
Tokyo 23-ku
Hi!
I am trying to find branches of Book off in Tokyo, and was wondering if anyone knew of any that are convenient to get to by rail/subway. I had heard of the Harajuku one, but couldn:t find it and then read that it has closed?
Please help!

There are much Book Off Shops in Tokyo.

A big one is in Kichijouji-it's very close to the JR Station.
I have them also seen in Meguro,Mejiro,Machida,Hachiouji-they are all close to the JR Station. If you go around you'll find them easily!

Ther is also a little one in Shinjuku, but it's "far" from the JR Station...and it's just a little shop.

And as you said, the is one in Harajuku...

I bet, there are much more shops.
Maybe I have seen more, but can't remember all areas^^;

However, I hope my answer is helpful for you.

yes, thank you!
I have only been to Shinjuku, Ueno, and Harajuku stations so far. So the one in Harajuku is still open? I will have to look again.

ok, I really can't find the one in Harajuku although there is a building being renovated - maybe that is where it was? Got to the one in Kijijou-ji though!

The Harajuku one should be just a right hand turn ate the end of Takeshita dori. If there's construction there, then likely the store has been closed (for now?).

I think it's gone 2008/3/25 08:09
I'm pretty sure that store has been gone for at least a year- they have been building something at the top of Takeshita dori on the right hand side there for quite a while too.

I stopped in at the harajuku bookoff less than a year ago and there was no signs of construction that I could see. That was in June. Perhaps it happened after my visit.....

Harajuku Book Off Closed 2009/1/19 09:28
Went to harrajuku, book off is definitely closed from where the loney planet said.
Go to Shibuya, you have Book Off and Mandarake close together short walk from the station. Go down Jingu Dori then left down the st between the Seibu department stores on either side of the street... keep going till you get to a police booth... bookoff one way, mandarake the other (within 50m).

Book Off Store in Shibuya, Tokyo 2009/4/19 10:10
Hi, I'm a visitor here on business and I stumbled onto Book Off in Shibuya quite easily yesterday. The Police box is easy to find - head left from Starbucks up a slight uphill side road until you reach the main drag. Go left staying on the main road and the police box will find you. It's a meeting spot for a lot of people apparently. A dirty grey thing that looks like a big portaloo :) from there you are close to the record/CD hub of Tokyo. Wander round and you will find lots of specialist music shops. I collect techno and had many good finds in the Shibuya Book Off store. Definately worth a visit if you get chance. You can get Japanese issue CD's of western artists from 100Yen. Thats cheap ! The book store also houses a massive collection of western books and DVD's of all types - new and used. The shop reminded me of the Music & Video Exchange chain of shops in London except much cleaner and better set out. Hope this helps
