If you're into photo books of Japanese gravure models, then chances are you've heard of Shosen. They also have a 7-story bookstore in Jimbocho but it's the 9th floor of their Book Tower in Akihabara which is famous as a "sacred site for gravure idol events."

For those who can't contain their curiosity about the latest Shosen gravure photo book ranking, the top position was won by Rio Teramoto, whose first photo book came out on March 25th.

You can order "Curiosity" from Shosen here or CDJapan here.

寺本莉緒1st写真集 CURIOSITY(出版社:講談社、発売日:2020/3/25)
