At first glance, Utrecht seems just like any other bookstore: a small space surrounded by bookshelves full of… books. However, it is the content of these very books that distinguish Utrecht from many of the other bookstores in Tokyo. Each one has been specially chosen by the owner, radio star Hiroshi Eguchi. The shop’s roughly 2000 books consist of rare and one-of-a-kind art books, picture books as well as novels from all over the world. Eguchi’s unique taste brings countless unknown gems into the shop, ensuring even the most avid reader will find something new and interesting.
Perhaps the only thing more impressive about Utrecht is the exceptional service offered by the staff. Every book has a history: one which the staff at Utrecht will be more than glad to explain. A concierge will even explain what each book is about. Utrecht aims to make each book an unforgettable experience for each of its customers. Not sure what you are looking for?
