"Shosen Book Tower" holds a collection of books that are highly specialized in genres such as railways, idols, martial arts, vehicles, the military, and computers. It feels like an archive of Akiba culture, as the whole building deals with each aspect of Akiba culture, even comics and magazine published by fans. Each floor is set up with a different theme, so you can easily find the books you want.
Of course there are comics. The collection is enhanced by instructional books about how to become a manga editor or a manga artist. The shop assistant says, "you can fully enjoy yourself even just looking at the photos and illustrations."
Godzilla, adapted into a film even by America. This corner is about special effects used in the filming.
There is also a rich collection of military magazines.
There is another corner dealing with the successive series of Gundam, very popular even overseas.
Sectioned off in this manner, you can find the book you want right away.
There is also a display for those who have come from overseas, a guide to the Akiba area.
We also have the English version of many comics. In addition, the top floor is a rest space, attractive for its unobstructed view of Akihabara district.
※ In one section of the 6th floor and the 9th floor, there are products designated for adults.
