I absolutely love this book shop. It’s really well laid out and very easy to find what you’re looking for or discover something new.

There’s lots of places to sit and explore books and it also has an attached cafe and stationary section.

The graphic novel section is massive and I could spend hours in this shop.

Get many of your Japanese books and paraphernalia here! They even have a JTC Tour agency in the bookstore, should you wish to book any tours to Japan.
Awesome atmosphere, and many great gifts to pick out for the various seasons.
Easily accessible in town: the nearest station is Town Hall.
Overall, a lovely place to visit, esp when the weather is too hot in summer, and vice versa for winter!

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..
