Introducing “books that make you want to travel” from the honto book tree We will introduce “books that make you want to travel” from “honto book tree”, a curation service that imagines “encounters with books” on the honto site like a bookstore.
“You can enjoy the real thrill of reading!
“One of the real pleasures of reading is being able to travel to a fictional country that is completely different from this world. Even if you think you can’t get it, you’ll be in it before you know it. It is inevitable that you will not be able to stop reading halfway through, so it is recommended to immerse yourself in it on your day off. (Book curator: honto editor)
Michael Ende (Author), Makiko Ueda, Mariko Sato (Translation) / Publisher: Iwanami Shoten
The country in the book that the boy is fascinated by is invaded by “emptiness” and is in a state of destruction. So the boy gets into the book and starts to save the country. It is a fantasy that makes you think about reading and the story itself as you see the relationship between the country in the book and reality, what is that country, what is “emptiness”.

〇 Book mail order store: https://honto.jp/netstore/pd-book_01779481.html “Golden age”
Michal Aivas (Author), Kenichi Abe (Translation) / Publisher: Kawade Shobo Shinsha
The author, Michal Aivas, is one of the leading contemporary Czech fantasy writers. As a poet and a philosopher, his story has books as an important motif, so if you like books, you will feel a sense of familiarity. And this book is a story written as a report on a fictitious island, and I am overwhelmed by the strength of its world view and the skill of the image.
〇 Book mail order store: https://honto.jp/netstore/pd-book_26410792.html “Invisible City”
Italo Calvino (Author), Yoshio Yonekawa (Translator) / Publisher: Kawade Shobo Shinsha
A masterpiece of fantasy literature by Italian writer Italo Calvino. Marco Polo tells Kublai Khan the story of his journey so far, and the state of a fictitious city is drawn. It can be read as a series of short stories, so it can be said that it is a book that is easy to pick up.

“honto” is a comprehensive bookstore that links online bookstores (book mail order store, e-book store) and real bookstores such as Maruzen, Junkudo Bookstore, Bunkyodo, etc. The month marked the 10th anniversary of the service.
The honto point service, which can be used by both online bookstores and real bookstores, has since expanded to about 180 stores, including Keirindo Bookstore, Toda Bookstore (9 stores), Hakodate Eikodo Marui Imai Store, and other real bookstores nationwide. I’m here.
As of October 2022, the number of members has exceeded 7.5 million, and we support people who love books with a service that provides “the books you want to read, when you want to read them, in the way you want to read them”.
