I mentioned Kinokuniya in my last post. In this post, I want to share more about what’s inside. Located across the street from Bryant Park, Kinokuniya has lots of things inside.
Of course, since it’s a Japanese bookstore, the majority of the books they carry are in Japanese. And while I may know very little Japanese, it doesn’t stop me from browsing.
Take you pick of manga!
And you even find things that don’t require any language.
(Being a cat owner, I love Maru.)
Upstairs on the second floor next to the Cafe Zaiya, is a little section of the room that sells handmade goods, including ties, wallets, tea plates, scarves, etc.
I was really taken by some of the craftsmanship on these products.
Down in the basement, you’ll find office supplies
And those really fine-tipped pens. I have a bunch from Muji already so I haven’t yet bought any from Kinokuniya.
And finally, interesting people seem to come and go from this shop as well.
