there are tons: t-site and cow books are probably the most 'famous' in sufu-esque circles, the former being particularly incredible.

 

blue parrot in takadanobaba used to stock tons of used english stuff (i bought an old camus paperback for like 500 yen or something), but apparently closed in the last year or two.

there's a 345 page thread

 

isn't this exactly why nobody wants to look through it though, especially since search doesn't really work properly

search or no search, a lot of it is down to pure laziness (especially since the majority of questions are the same). i ain't rewarding that.

That's great! Any recommendations for local japanese food, places to check out for street wear etc.

Love to cop a pair of these http://sneakernews.com/2016/09/02/nike-flyknit-racer-blackout/

Would also love to find some good bars and live music. Any cool joints in Nakasu?

      Hello,
      I hope this is the proper section to open this discussion in. Sorry in advance if not.
      ZenMarket has been my Japan proxy service of choice for quite a while now, they're fabulous, but they don't do phone orders - they allow for shopping from online shops proper. However, I have seen many Japanese websites and/or blogs and/or bricks and mortar shops that do advertise their products online but only accept purchases placed by a phone call.
      The question is: Is there any quality (on par with ZenMarket hopefully), reliable Japan proxy service that supports phone orders?
      Thanks!
