Kinokuniya Los Angeles
Kinokuniya Los Angeles store is located in the Weller Court Shopping Mall in the Little Tokyo Village next to Los Angeles City Hall. The store was first opened as a small shop inside a hotel in the village in 1977, and then moved to the current location in 1980.
For over 40 years, we have been dedicated to not only providing Japanese books and magazines to the community, but also introducing a variety of Japanese culture to the people of Southern California.
We have a wide range of Japan related books in English. Be sure to visit our Haruki Murakami display when you come to the literature section. Other popular sections include Japanese cooking, traditional and modern art, crafts, children’s books, travel, history, Japanese language books and more! There is also a large selection of graphic novels and manga in Japanese and English.
We carry unique and high quality stationery from Japan, art supplies, organizers, specialty papers, inks, fountain pens, and mechanical pencils. Many of them are from Pilot, Sailor, Kaweco and Lamy. Our store also carries fancy and cute gift items from Japan.
