Bonjinsha is a specialty bookstore that got its start more than 30 years ago selling preparatory materials for the JLPT, and it carries everything from specialized dictionaries for translators to educational games and toys for children. Bonjinsha’s Kojimachi shop — the only retail bookshop in Tokyo that specializes almost exclusively in Japanese-language study-and-reference materials … it is run by the Bonjinsha publisher based in Tokyo’s Chiyoda Ward that networks closely with organizations promoting the study of Japanese.
In addition to the retail shop, mail-order services are available via its Web site. It will ship to domestic addresses for a small handling fee.

Hello friends! How do you do?
I am a university student of languages and I would like to know more about
your publications. How could I receive a “brochure” of the language and the japanese schools in Japan? I´ve received one a long, long time ago.
Please contact Bonjinsha directly as we are not affiliated with the bookstore.
The bookstore is now open only until 5 pm now. My friend and I got there are 5:15 pm today, and they were already closed, but they were kind enough to let us in and help us find the books we needed.
