Large store on multiple levels showcasing books, crafts and lifestyle merch. Can spend a good many hours here just browsing. Arts and crafts section especially interesting with exhibits from many areas of Japan.

Maruzen Tokyo is a great bookstore. There is of course a large selection of Japanese books but also a large section of up-to-date foreign (mostly English) books on the top floor. The stationary section is also worth visiting. In addition to all the usual stationary...More

A must if you read and enjoy top quality stationery. Easily accessible from Tokyo station. Books in all languages, fiction and non-fiction. Difficult to leave without buying something. Helpful staff. Avoid the coffee at coffee shop. One entire floor of English books

In looking for a good book on coffee, I was delighted to find an entire section devoted to the art of coffee making. コーヒー辞書、コーヒーの全てなど、様々なな本がありました。4階には多くの万年筆会社の商品や、高級腕時計があります。次回は名物のハヤシライスを食べてみたいです。カフェのブレンドコーヒーも美味しかったです。忙しい東京の中心に完璧な一休みスポット。

Very hard to leave without spending loads of money! Awesome selection of English books... and 100x more of Japanese Books. Along with Kinokuniya, probably the largest Book Store in Tokyo!

I go there to stock on Japanese stationary. High quality and very large choice. Only problem: sometime you buy way more than what you need

My mom and I spent about an hour browsing here after lunch last week. The English-language section is quite good featuring bestsellers as well as a pretty extensive section on Japan. They also have small nooks where they sell leather goods and specialty items perfect...More

I'm a bookworm, books attract me like a magnet. So I've walked into a number of bookshops in Japan. This one is my favourite. There are ample books to choose from; many are in Japanese but there is a good selection of English books if...More

Ginza / Tokyo Nihonbashi
Ginza is famous for being a trendy hotspot, but it's
also a downtown area with shops that were founded over
a hundred years ago. Department stores and luxury
boutiques line the route from Nihonbashi to Ginza.
It's a long established tradition to shop and stroll
while the road is closed to traffic. Luxury hotels,
world class cuisine from talented chefs, and a
collection of glitzy clubs will make this area popular
