DISCOVER: The World’s First One Book Bookstore

Every city has a must-see bookstore, and in Tokyo it’s Morioka Shoten & Co. Opening in 2015 on a quiet street in Tokyo’s Ginza district, Morioka Shoten is the world’s only one book bookstore, selling a book at a time, with a new title each week. The minimal shop changes weekly to host a small exhibition and series of in-store events, encouraging visitors to explore the current title in depth.

“This is an attempt to make the two-dimensional book into three-dimensional ambience and experience. I believe that the customers, or readers, should feel as though they are entering ‘inside a book’.” 

– Yoshiyuki Morioka
