Koganecho Artbook Bazaar

As one of Yokohama's art bases, Koganecho is attracting attention at artist-in-residence and art festivals. Studios, galleries, show window-style public art, etc. are lined up under the elevated Keikyu Line that extends to the neighboring Hinodecho and its vicinity. In that area, I found a fashionable second-hand bookstore fitted with glass that also used the Keikyu Line underpass. It is "Koganecho Artbook Bazaar".

The "Koganecho Artbook Bazaar" opened on April 1, 2010 and is operated by the Koganecho Area Management Center. Since Shingo Yamano, the director of "Koganecho Bazaar", liked old books, about 40,000 old books, mainly art books such as photo books, art books, and magazines, were collected, and he loves art. This is an irresistible shop for book lovers.


Don't miss the special booth that introduces Asian art books!

In addition to books, the store also displays and sells the works of artists who are staying in Koganecho and working on their production.


If you want to see more of this artist's work, feel free to consult with the staff, using the "favorite" you found here as a trigger!


Bare light bulbs that illuminate the inside of the store, bare steel frames, nostalgic flat-stacked CDs, and plastic model sets that are popular with enthusiasts ... The "chaos" space that makes the store itself a part of the art work is also attractive.

Looking out of the store ... Along with the old books, the greens that appeared in the art event "Co-Garden-Koganecho's Wonderful Gardening Shop", which was held before and mainly exhibited and sold works related to "plants", were also on sale. ..

When strolling around the Koganecho area, be sure to visit the Koganecho Artbook Bazaar, where you can enjoy the unique nostalgic scent of an antiquarian bookstore. If you take a closer look at the shelves in a mysterious space like a maze, you will surely find a book that will appeal to you.
