There are two areas in Tokyo that are considered to be “holy places for book lovers”:
Kanda and Daikanyama. 

Kanda is a historically-rich area filled with rare and used books from various fields.

Daikanyama is a stylish area facing Yamate Avenue, where fashionable shops and various embassies line up. A few years ago, an attractive bookstore called TSUTAYA Daikanyama opened. 

For book lovers, both areas are the perfect destinations when visiting Tokyo. You will find also the fantastic mixture of “Old meets New”…
