Muji's gigantic flagship store near Yurakucho station has been recreated as a specialty bookstore. It still houses the usual retail departments, selling simply designed furnishings, housewares, clothing, stationery and even food, but now undulating walls of bookshelves snake through the retail space, showcasing books related to the goods on display.
There's a branch of "Found Muji" on the second floor, the concept store where Muji introduces items from craftsmen around the world. And if you get hungry while you're shopping, drop into the branch of Muji's stylish deli-cafe, Meal Muji. Down on the ground floor there's a surprisingly large food market, selling mainly fresh produce, and a miniature Muji House.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
