We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

I just posted this to another conversation and thought it might be handy to have here for us. Here are a few of the places I know take zines and comics in Japan - Please add to this list if you know anything else.

Here are a couple good zine stores in Japan:

Thanks for the info Adam. It seems Irregular Rhythm Asylum's URL is a little different though: http://a.sanpal.co.jp/irregular/ Well it's almost the same but when I click on your link it gives me a "broken link."
There is another distro in Tokyo called lilmag. They both carry Japanese and foreign zines. You can find them at http://lilmag.org/
I had a look at the links:
- I couldn't really get a sense of what Taco Che does, but judging by the very few images I's say they deal in different kinds of smut.
- not sure whether Yebisu Art Lab know what a zine is. Under the 'zine' tag they have many rather expensve books.
Thanks for the shout-out, Adam. I hope to have the site up and running soon. Gianni, I guess calling the first three "zine stores" might be misleading, since they don't focus on zines, but do have them. IRA has tons of music and books as well as zines. And Taco Che does indeed stock erotica, but also some awesome indie art books, comics and zines. It's in the otaku-fabulous Nakano Broadway mall, which makes it worth a trip if you're anywhere near the area.

I visited Yebisu Art Labo and agree that a lot of the zines there were overpriced, but it seemed that the prices were set by the artists/zinesters, not marked up by the shop, as a few were very reasonably priced. But maybe that's a different discussion...
Thanks also for the Information, this is very useful.
