About KEIBUNSHA ICHIJOJI

Keibunsha is a “Select shop having a wide selection of books and goods”. We’d like to introduce not only the new books but also the books and goods that are selected by staff with all our hearts.
We propose having an unexpected chance meeting; however, the books are functionally shelved.
The books are neatly decorated with beautiful covers; please enjoy looking at them.

The book has various functions, not only as a tool to obtain information on improvisation and knowledge.
It is possible to carry one in your bag, to decorate shelves, or you might finish reading one while enjoying a summer vacation.

Nowadays the speed of the information transmission keeps increasing.
Books have a special quality all their own, like an analog feeling, peacefully getting, slowly getting information.
We’d like to value this quality in the current of the times.
It would be greatly appreciated if you could have this feeling from our product lineup.

We have an abundant collection of not only so-called books but also various miscellaneous goods from all over the world, CDs, and DVDs, etc.
They are not only items suitable for the color of “Keibunsha”, but also increasing the enjoyment of reading, or richly coloring your life with books.

In gallery “Enfer”, established as an annex, we lend space to students and local or nameless artists.

Moreover, this gallery functions as a place that introduces various cultures through our project exhibition, which frequently showcases an original point of view.

“Seikatsu-kan (Life pavilion)” opened a store in 2006.
It proposes books that relate to life especially food, clothing, housing, and the miscellaneous goods linked with them.
The mini gallery in this floor is being offered to artists, shops, or brands regardless of genre.
In this space, you will be able to see commodities that are rarely found in other shops.
