Mount Zine is a shop specialising in (you guessed it) zines. For those unfamiliar with the concept, a zine is essentially a magazine or fanzine with a very limited print run. In this case, instead of carefully selecting which zines should be sold, the owners simply pick every zine they're presented in spring and autumn and then sell them. For the customer, this means being able to choose from over 150 titles, from well-known to anonymous; for the creators themselves, it means having the freedom to create zines, no matter who they are or what they're targeting. Considering all stock is replaced every six months, if you see something that tickles your fancy, we'd suggest getting it right there and then. For those interested in creating their own zine but not sure where to start, Mount Zine also offers zine-making workshops. In addition, they have an online store and even host zine-related events both in Japan and abroad.
