Book Off & Book Off Bazaar


"Japan is expensive." Yes, I've heard that declaration many a time. But it doesn't have to be if you shop at Book Off and Book Off Bazaar! Book Off is Japan's largest chain of used book stores, with over 800 locations nationwide. There are eight Book Offs in the USA, five of them in Southern California.

Book Off is a treasure-trove of used Japanese books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs, and everything is sold at a significant discount. Remember that art book you gazed upon and longed to hold in your hands? What about that manga series you wanted to try? Was it not your fondest wish to complete your collection of SMAP CDs? It is very possible for your dreams to come true at Book Off.

I have visited many Book Offs in Japan and have a special regard for the stores in Kochi and Fukuoka. The Fukuoka Store is actually called Book Off Super Bazaar because it has much more than books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs - it is filled to the rafters with a wondrous variety of used merchandise. We spent time in the anime-related section and inspected hundreds of items. For my daughter and me, a trip to Book Off is a treat every time we come to Japan.
