If you are not a book lover, this place might just change your mind! It's a really large store, well organised into various sections and high quality collection of books. As a avid reader of graphic novels and manga I spent an hour on that floor and was not done exploring it all! There's some nice merchandise as well (tshirts, toys) and a small cafe on the way out on the top floor. The staff were very helpful in pointing me straight to specific books I was looking for.

This book store in the city of Sydney is one of my favourites. It has a wonderful variety of books for sale and also has very helpful, friendly staff. I highly recommend you visit it soon.

My wife and I visited the Kinokuniya specifically to enquire about some Japanese books written in Japanese. Not only did we receive excellent personal service, but also we quickly became aware that the book store stocks an enormous range of books on any subject you could possibly think of, backed up by very knowledgeable and helpful staff in their particular specialities. We were impressed that where they had multiple copies of a book that just one was available for browsing, while the rest were vacuum-sealed for purchase of an unbrowsed book.

This is my one stop shop for nearly everything when I come for my annual visits to Sydney. Join the membership and get 10% off! They stock just about anything and have a nice little coffee-shop attached inside too.
