Kinokuniya is a Japanese bookstore chain, founded in 1927, with its first store located in Shinjuku, Tokyo. It means "Store of Kii Province". Since 2000, the Kinokuniya chain in the United States has capitalized on the growing popularity of anime by stocking both English and Japanese-language manga, as well as other anime-related paraphernalia. The New York City branch on 49th Street was the best-known, encompassing, lengthwise, an entire city block. A new store has opened south on 41st Street, and the old store is in the process of closing.
