With old train stock on the JR Ube line in Yamaguchi revived amid a surge of new COVID-19 cases throughout the country, second-hand book stores nearest to stations remain a constant, dependable presence. Take Bohemian's Guild in Jimbocho
for example, or Totodo
in Shibuya. There is also Flotsam Books
near Daitabashi station, SO BOOKS
close to Yoyogi-Hachiman, Honk Books
in between Kanamecho and Ikebukuro and Kongen Shobo
near Ekoda on the Seibu-Ikebukuro line. After all, knowledge is power.
