Fantastic selection of Japanese books for a unbeatable price in the US.
The prices are affordable and the place is clean and well organized.
Lots of great deals on regular books and you can’t beat all the $1 comic books!

Love this place, they generally have what I’m looking for in regards to popular books in English. They also cater to a Japanese speaking audience as well. Initially, on my first visit, I was expecting this business to only cater to foreign language books and graphic novels. I was sadly mistaken and totally surprised at how good this place is. They have so much great stuff here. In addition, they sell lightly used electronics and game consoles which they thoroughly check before accepting. In addition, the staff is extremely polite, cheerful and happy. If you are also into audio, this is your place.

Probably one of the cleanest, most organized and more diverse bookstores I’ve ever been to. They have everything sorted by category: from used manga in Japanese (that practically looks brand new, if we’re being honest), to manga in English, children’s books in Japanese and English, action figures (new ones), video games (both used and brand new), video game consoles, musical instruments, DVD and Blu-Ray movies, music CDs, and even fiction and non fiction books in English. The staff is friendly and courteous and you can even bring your own stuff to be evaluated and sold for money (that part is hit or miss, sometimes you get a fair amount for them but also once I brought about 8 different books and I got like 3.15 for them, so that’s up to you if you take the money or keep your books and donate them or something).
They hardly paid for a book, they were unclear and not upfront about things. I hauled two big boxes worth of books and was only paid $13 dollars. Its not worth the effort, you might as well donate your books.
