  • I think the first time I went to a bookstore in Australia was adelaide's Dymocks, but I was surprised at how small it was. That's why I was surprised because the Kinokuniya in Sydney is so big. The number of bookstores is decreasing not only in Japan, but also a global phenomenon, but I am still surprised at the size of bookstores in big cities in Japan.

  • Kinokuniya is located on the third floor of the shopping building "The Galeries" in front of QVB at Sydney Town Hall Station. There are few big bookstores in Australia, and this is one of the largest bookstores in the Southern Hemisphere. The atmosphere of the shop, the way the books are arranged, and the system are basically Japanese Kinokuniya style, so it is a place to feel relieved for Japanese people. English books are the main focus, but there are also Books from England and the United States, and there are many manga corners that translate Japanese. Of course, we also deal with Japanese books, mainly the latest books (although somewhat expensive). There are also quite a few Chinese books. The clerk also has japanese people, so you can consult with them. There is an art gallery where exhibits change every two weeks and sydney's famous cafés.
