Named Tokyo's Tokyo, the store sells Manga and Anime magazines and products at a shopping centre in Shibuya.

The shelves swell out from the walls while display counters have surfaces that curve up towards the edges, resembling giant stacks of comic books strewn across the floor.

A platform with wavy wooden steps is located at the centre of the shop for use as seating.

Here's some extra text from Ryo Matsui Architects:


We had designed the editorial shop “Tokyo’s Tokyo” that featured the theme of Manga and Anime. In this store, we not only treated the products which related Manga and Anime, but also aimed at the space that is penetrated with the culture and expression of Manga.
