A Lifestyle Bookstore Network Created in the Spirit of DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA BOOKS
DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA BOOKS is a bookstore that sells much more than books. The elegant atmosphere and abundant collections of books, music, and movies are strong enticements to linger.
TSUTAYA BOOKS has spread throughout Japan, emulating the spirit of DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA BOOKS. HAKODATE TSUTAYA was the first store to open, followed by stores in Tokyo and Makuhari.
In 2014 we will be opening a TSUTAYA BOOKS in a joint project with the new public library in Tagajo, Miyagi. The plans for the Miyagi project are modeled after the library-shop concept used for the TAKEO CITY LIBRARY in Saga.
Many of our other shop concepts are borrowed from DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA BOOKS in Tokyo. Like DAIKANYAMA TSUTAYA, we are trying out new ways to target the over-50 demographic, what we call the "premium age," and to tailor our stores to the communities where we create them.
