To fulfill our vision of dream, namely branch store deployment in overseas, and to make a leap to be a company to contribute to world's printed-word culture
Now, the number of Japanese people living in abroad for the purpose of business or study is about 800,000. For these expatriates, the cost of Japanese-language books run high, if these books are available at all. BOOKOFF addresses this acute need with shipments of used books from Japan, for sale locally at attractively low prices. Having already opened our shops in Hawaii, New York, and Los Angels, Paris, Vancouver, we are planning deployment of used book stores in major overseas cities. To have a base of Japanese culture in various areas, and the other way around, to import used books written in various languages to Japan to establish a BOOKOFF World Pavilion----. We are expanding our corporate vision to the world, striving to provide good value, and to make a useful contribution to the local communities where we do business.
