This Sydney branch of Kinokuniya bookshops is far better laid out than the Singapore shop. Whereas I found the Singapore store confusing and not book location friendly (despite assistants to guide you) the Sydney shop I found extremely easy to navigate.

The range of books was greater than Dymocks, Sydney. Also that the prices asked were significantly cheaper than Whitcoulls NZ - as I discovered by going to Whitcoulls on-line. This despite the variation in exchange rates !! Also I noted that the range of Manga and similar comics was especially well catered for.

This bookshop is outstanding and if you are looking for a particular genre - the place to go.

This bookstore is super complete and awesome (literally i could sleep inside lol) and whenever i try to find a spesific book I never ask their staff because I search through their website since their bookshelf code is 100% always accurate..

The bookshop was where I would be happy to spend a whole day there. It was spacious and the interior design would encourage reading. There were a large variety of books in English, Japanese and Chinese; there were also a lot of magazines as well. I bought a book about Chinese Medicine; it was one that my brother couldn't find in Hong Kong. I am so happy to recommend this bookshop to other people.

I stopped going to the store after the invasive bag check. They take the bags from you and dig through the staff you have inside. I don't think this is legal.
