Kinokuniya is a name book lovers globally will recognise, and Abu Dhabi got a store of its own last week, when the Japanese literary giant opened its doors at The Galleria on Al Maryah Island.

With a staggering 150,000 titles on its shelves spread over two levels, Abu Dhabi's bookish community will find titles in English, Arabic, French and Japanese, with everything from fiction to comics, cookery books and autobiographies in store. There is also an area devoted to all things manga, with comics, Japanese toys and collectibles all on sale.
