For the books you will never find in the large bookshops

This bookshop is well known as a place to discover books that you will never come across in the normal large bookstores as well as for having popular magazines and books written by authors like Taka-aki Yoshimoto and Minoru Yamada.  Above all, the shop claims to have the biggest selection in Japan of books related to modern Japanese Tanka (one of the forms of Japanese poetry) which is why some of their regular customers travel from far away to come here.
