About Us

Site Overview

BOOK TOWN Jimbou is an "online general book information center" set in Kanda Jimbocho, the world's most proud book town. It is not just a book search site or a town information introduction site. Even if you don't know the title or author of the book, we will be happy to help you find "the right book" through each purpose, such as hobbies, tastes, and intellectual exploration.

Our service will "associate" with your request and introduce you to books that seem to match the most. Currently, information on used bookstores is our main focus, but it will continue to evolve with the information provided by numerous new books selling stores, publishers, and libraries in Jimbocho. We will offer information to our site users in long distances, so they can virtually experience the charm of strolling in this world's best bookstore district.

This website is operated by the nonprofit organization "Association Press" with the full cooperation of the Kanda Bookstore Federation. The construction of a search service by the National Institute of Informatics. Thank you for your warm support.
