Maruzen closed up its Kyoto's store a couple of years ago. I figured they were gone for good. Kinokuniya has stores all over S.E. Asia (S'pore, Hong Kong, etc.) and I thought they would be good for the long haul. But as I said, the Osaka Kinokuniya is carrying far less books, but Maruzen opened an entire building! Nothing special about this new one other than its gigantic size and huge English Language Section. BTW, both chain have reduced prices on English language books and magazines. We no longer have to pay $25 for a copy of 'Time.'
