My Favourite Place: Kino at Liang Court

Kinokuniya at Bugis

The Kinokuniya, Japanese bookstore at Bugis Junction has been renovated, but I still find it quite crammed. Sadly there is no stationary section here. I prefer the one at Liang Court for browsing and the main branch at Ngee Ann … Continue reading

Kinokuniya at Liang Court

Browsing the books at Kinokuniya, in particular the branch at Liang Court, is a pleasure. The rows are well spaced out and the Japanese books which I sadly can’t read are so beautiful, they are like works of art to … Continue reading
