Last Saturday, July 11, we held our opening event at the new, permanent location of Book Ideas at Momijigaoka 1-39-4.

If you were unable to attend the opening or would like to spend some more time looking at books, exploring the location or meeting up with friends, we will be open on

We hope you understand that we are still in the process of moving in and organizing the space! As Book Ideas continues to take shape, please don't hesitate to communicate your ideas and wishes for the future.
