Yes, Japan Centre in London. Regent Street. If you go out of Piccadilly Circus tube station and follow the road with Virgin Megastores (now Zavvi) on the right hand side, it's a large supermarket on the left side a little while down. You can't really miss it - the bookstore is on the lower floor at the back of the main store.

Since it's a Japanese import, you have to go to specialist stores for this kind of stuff. Since I saw you were located in London I thought I'd mention Japan Centre - it's probably the only place in England that imports them to an offline store, so you're lucky :)

Yes absolutely.

You can get them on Amazon, TheJapanShop (thejapanesepage's store), and I think you can order directly from the publisher (The Japan Times) but I'm not sure. Not to mention the numerous other bookstores and online shops around.


[EDIT]: kayuu beat me to the punch :D Never occurred to me to look at your location..sorry I couldn't be of any help, I've never been to London.

My college's bookstore sells it, so maybe one near you does, too, although it can be annoying for the students if non-students buy up the required textbooks... But it's an idea.

Yes we ship to the U.K. (and worldwide) often. I had to block some African states and Vietnam because of fraud, though...

And... if you buy from us, no student will get angry for you buying up all the required books!

I live in canada and ordered mine from thejapanshop.com. It's worth it, a really good book. I was surprised anyways.
