#78. Kinokuniya Bookstores in Singapore

At Kinokuniya, which I fondly call Kino, the largest bookstore in Singapore (Ngee Ann City) you can find almost any book as it carries half a million titles. I also love the smaller but cosier branch at Liang Court which carries 150,000 titles. They both have awesome stationary sections too. Browsing here is a great joy.

Books Kinokuniya was founded in 1927, with its first store located in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It means “Store of Kii Province”. It was originally a lumber and charcoal dealer. After the Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923, the business was moved to a new location in Shinjuku where it was re-fashioned into a book store.

  1. I love to visit the Kinokuniya at Takashimaya and get lost in it (of course I try to buy a book to read)!
