-====== Online Japanese bookstores ====== +Moved to [[Online bookstores]]
- +
-Online Japanese bookstores are expensive.  +
- +
-They don't ship overseas, except these three: +
- +
-   * [[http://www.amazon.co.jp/|amazon.co.jp]] +
-   * [[http://www.bk1.jp/|bk1.jp]] +
-   * [[http://www.hmv.co.jp/|hmv.co.jp]] +
- +
-Book prices seem to be fixed, so you look into shipping costs and service quality in order to choose where to buy from. +
- +
-[[http://www.amazon.co.jp/|amazon.co.jp]] and [[http://www.hmv.co.jp/|hmv.co.jp]] have English versions whereas [[http://www.bk1.jp/|bk1.jp]] doesn't. +
- +
-I've bought from [[http://www.bk1.jp/|bk1.jp]] and [[http://www.hmv.co.jp/|hmv.co.jp]]. +
- +
-[[http://www.amazon.co.jp/|amazon.co.jp]] has a marketplace where used books are sold. These can be much cheaper than new books, but they only ship within Japan so you'll have to use a [[Japanese forwarding services|forwarding service]] and do some math to check if what you are saving in the book's price is more than forwarding fees. +
