Only In Japan


Located in a southwestern Tokyo suburb, within sight of Mount Fuji, Shonan T-Site is a uniquely Japanese take on the bookstore. Owned by the entertainment retailer Tsutaya, the store is situated in a former Panasonic factory complex that is being redeveloped as a model town project.



Incorporating three buildings that stretch over two blocks, the store extends along a 120-meter-long “interior street’. The retail space includes book and periodical sections, a café, an Apple store, a lounge area, small retail shops, a printing shop, and restaurants with stunning views of Mount Fuji.
