Village Vanguard Hankyu Umeda

SPOT NAMEVillage Vanguard Hankyu Umeda

Village Vanguard is a must-visit bookstore that doesn’t specialise in just books! What else does a bookstore sell?!

At Village Vanguard, the most fun bookstore you’ll ever visit, you can also find design based T-shirts, phone cases, kitchen devices, and a range of accessories. It’s a little bit like a gift shop, and a lot like a bookstore. The books they do carry, however, are mostly resale or vintage books. Think 80s manga and 70s cookbooks!

They have a lot of memorabilia which is of interest to a fan of absolutely anything – they cater to both niche interests and mainstream alike! Each location is unique, so make sure you walk in every time you see this amusing store. Some stores will also sell snack foods if you find you’ve been in there so long you’ve skipped a meal.
