‘Most beautiful bookstore’ Tsutaya to open in Taipei


Taipei (Taiwan News) -- Tsutaya, a Japanese bookstore franchise, opened its first overseas branch in Taipei Tuesday on the 5th floor of the Uni-Ustyle Department Store in Xinyi District.

The TSUTAYA BOOKSTORE will be a “book and café” themed bookstore, selling not only Chinese, Japanese, and English books but also music albums and DVDs, coffee, cocktails, and the brand’s selective stationery.

TSUTAYA BOOKSTORE was chosen among Flavorwire's list of the 20 most beautiful bookstores in the world, with an elegant atmosphere and abundant collection of books, music, and movies.

The bookstore plans to open five branches in Taiwan within three years. Each store will have different styles based on the local environment and target audience.
