If you are a Japanese language learner and in Japan, visit Bookoff.
If you are a Japanese language learner and in Singapore, visit KI-SHUN.
KI-SHUN is a small (but well-stocked) second hand bookstore in Singapore specialising in Japanese novels, non-fiction titles and even manga (!!!).
Located at the basement level of Hong Leong Building in the busy CBD district, it’s not somewhere where you will discover at random while going shopping – you have to know it’s there to go there.
And now that you know it’s there, please go there!
Stepping into the bookstore makes me feel like I’m back in Japan. ❤
Rows and rows of Japanese books, a small chiller selling Japanese canned drinks, all the Japanese notices and the Japanese lady at the counter ❤
I love how these books are like in almost-pristine condition! You can’t even tell that they are second-hand books. Novels are arranged by author names (just like in Japan) and the selection is pretty awesome!
I bought (yet another) 東野 圭吾 book for SGD 6!! What a steal! ^^
A nice collection of non-fiction titles too.
This is how I envision my future room to look like! (I wish)
Rows and rows of manga series!!!! 😀
ORIGINAL JAPANESE MANGA
It’s like walking into a manga store, just that it’s way cheaper!
Priced reasonably too! (: very reasonably
I saw some titles that I recognise (not yet a manga pro) – like .. Kaichou wa maid sama (会長はメイド様), NANA etc
I’m itching to get my hands on a few series!! gosh.
If you are learning Japanese (and living in Singapore), this is definitely a place you have to check out! ^^
Now you know where to get Japanese novels in Singapore~~!
p.s. The B1 of Hong Leong Building seems to house quite a number of Japan-related shops. I guess there are quite a number of Japanese companies in the area?
I’m definitely going to drop by again.
Opening Hours: 10:30 – 20:00 Mon-Sat
