Anjin | Daikanyama
Located on top of Tsutaya Daikanyama, one of Japan’s, if not the world’s best book stores (in our humble opinion), Anjin is not just blessed with an incredible location but also a gem in its own right. Often overlooked by people busy browsing through the bookstore’s three buildings, Anjin lounge takes over the second floor of the center building and offers a break from the monster of a bookstore that is Tsutaya Daikanyama. With a small selection of drinks and foods on offer, it is the perfect stopover to browse through the lounge’s collection of vintage magazines and further inspect any of the books from the downstairs area. Before you leave don’t forget to marvel at the phenomenal artwork by Masatake Kouzaki who created a nine-metre-long, golden screen panel which acts as the center piece of the lounge.
Anjin sometimes has live piano music during which evenings guests will be asked to pay an extra a music charge.
