Morioka Shoten & Co. in Tokyo’s Ginza district opened this Spring with a singular approach to bookselling. The tiny, gallery-like shop carries just one title each week. The founder of this enigmatic bookshop model, Yoshiyuki Morioka, has taken curation to its ultimate extreme. Along with a new title each week, he also provides an exhibition of relevant art, photography, crafts or jewelry reflecting on the singular book.
The shop is located in the beautiful Suzuki Building, built in 1929 and once the headquarters of Nippon Kobo Publishing.
