Positioned in the heart of Japantown, Kinokuniya functions as one of the best resources for books in the city. Divided into two floors, the lower level is primarily dedicated to manga - Japanese comics - while the upper level features a wider selection of international works. Diverse and eclectic, everything from cookbooks on sushi to popular contemporary titles from writers like Malcolm Gladwell have a space in the store. Also boasting a varied collection of international magazines, revered titles such as Dazed & Confused and Interview Magazine are available. Celebrating unique merchandise as well, floral calendars, domo dolls and flowers-in-a-can typify the range of specialty items found at Kinokuniya. With books on subjects as varied as social studies, literature, design and martial arts, Kinokuniya rivals big chain stores and remains a favorite to many within the Japantown neighborhood.Show lessRead more
