Time Out says

Cow Books is nestled among the hip boutiques and eateries lining the Nakameguro stretch of the Meguro River: after sundown, you’ll spot it from afar thanks to the shop’s ‘cow’ logo being projected onto the pavement outside.

A bijou but superbly executed concept bookstore that blends traditionally ‘bookish’ furnishings with sleek modernity, the shop specialises in rare literary and art tomes from underground and countercultural movements of the postwar period: the Cow Books manifesto of ‘Everything for the Freedom’ appears on a ‘ticker tape’ LED strip running around the space’s perimeter. The shop is perhaps more popular though for its range of stylish original goods, which includes bookends and book storage systems crafted from natural wood, t-shirts, tote bags and even ‘reading cushions’ designed to sit on your lap as you lose yourself in a favourite book.
