Kinokuniya Bookstore (紀伊国屋)

Just a great book store.

This bookstore has been open since 1927. My mom always told me to just go Kinokuniya all the time whenever I need to find some books when I was a kid. It’s been around long time and I always thought this store has everything you need. I still love spending time in this book store just because I find something and I get inspired. They have from manga, magazine, text book, foreign books to DVDs. Japanese magazines are so fun and so much information always, also so many niche kind of magazines as well. The foreign books are also available.
