1262 Yanan Xi Lu
Japan's biggest bookstore's first outpost in Shanghai. Tsutaya is set in an historic villa in Columbia Circle. They boast a collection of over 50,000 books, most of which are in Chinese. There is a small English section and a giant art section. A walk around the elegant building that was once the residence of Sun Yat Sen's son is worth the trip alone.
