A stylish and unique used bookstore with the Keikyu Line running above it.
Koganecho Art Book Bazaar
As one of Yokohama's art hubs, Koganecho attracts attention with artist-in-residences and art festivals. Studios, galleries, and public art in the form of show windows are lined up under and near the elevated Keikyu Line that extends to neighboring Hinode-cho. In that area, I found a stylish old bookstore with a glass wall, which was also located under the elevated Keikyu Line. "Koganecho Art Book Bazaar"
Koganecho Art Book Bazaar opened on April 1, 2010 and is managed by the Koganecho Area Management Center. Since Mr. Shingo Yamano, the director of Koganecho Bazaar, loved old books, about 40,000 old books, mainly art books such as photo books, art books, and magazines, have been collected. This is an irresistible store for book lovers.
