Facade of Book-Off of Sanjo Keihan Station.

Not mowed and cultured!

Thanks to the this famous Japanese secondhand store, Book-Off, local music has almost no secrets for novices.

Located in the building of Sanjo Keihan Station in the center of Kyoto, this megastore, which is primarily a bookstore, is distinguished by its wide range of CD. The products sold are all secondhand, making it possible to compile a Japanese music collection at very affordable prices.

From one hundred yen for forgotten songs of the 1980s to several thousand yen for collector box sets. The music department is on the first floor also occupied by the film department. The DVD section is not left out either, with Japanese films, Asian and American films. There is no risk of incompatibility, as the Japanese DVD zone is the same as the European one. The Japanese animation enthusiasts will also find something to satisfy them both in manga and cartoons. Book-Off, one of the most famous Japanese companies overseas along with Muji and Uniqlo, deserves recognition for its specific marketing that makes old look like new, which is even more impressive in the largest branch of the city.
