At the age of 14 (21 years ago) I got dazzled by the cover book of Dominion Tank Police "Puma Sisters", from Shirow Masamune. I remember I stood watching it for at least 5 minutes.
Life went on until one day, (few years later), inside an old book shop, got my head blown away the moment I discovered a bomb titled, "Angel" written by U-Jin, the vol 6, book which I still have, I'm sure this filled a place on my head.
Many years passed and since then i have been to Japan several times and discovered an entire world of beauty which almost no one knows.
I plan on bringing the best illustrators i know from Japan.
Art not money
I'm in this for the art. Eventually, money will help grow the store, allowing me to bring more artists and different books for you to see.
Most of the books I sell are usually a few years old, but always in pristine condition and sealed inside plastics.
and Even though
I do my best and i use my spare time to build this site, it's taking me time to make it as i want it to be. If you could only imagine how many books are published in all Japan EACH WEEK. I would need a dozens of people adding products to this website everyday. SO!, if you are looking for any specific book/author, please contact me, and I will fetch it in the best possible condition.

We want to completely transform the public view of this art back to what it was hundreds of years ago in Japan and make it open and broader once again. This pursuit is long, but we know we will succeed thanks to your support.
Many shops in Japan reject overseas user registration, and most of the time shipping options are not available either. On top of that these products are categorized as “restricted” and no proxy service will buy them for you due to its contents. Not to mention that once you manage to get the books, they still need to face customs clearance...
At the beginning, all of these issues made the books very difficult to import.
We believe 100% that if we didn’t like these pieces of art this much, we would have stopped doing it. We certainly believe that our customers should enjoy the art without any trouble.
Peace of mind
After many failed attempts and hard dedication, we solved most of the transport issues that happened during the traveling of the books. Leaving you only with the waiting for them to subtly and discreetly knock on your door.
Anytime a package does not arrive to you (which rarely happens), you will get a choice from getting your order re-shipped or fully refunded. Basically it means you will always be 100% covered.
We love Japan and this culture so much, that we consider these books as small pieces of art and collectible rarities, that is why we take unbelievable care during packaging and shipping them to you.
We take your trust so seriously that we consider that a sale is not finished until the customer is happy. These words are burned with fire in our soul and we truly mean it.
