Damn Your One Fine Books & Stationery Store, Kinokuniya Santa Monica

On your way to the beach and you suddenly might see a mirage, nestled into the Japanese supermarket Mitsuwa Marketplace is

Kinokuniya Santa Monica Books & Stationery
3760 S Centinela Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90066
(310) 482-3382

A smaller version of it's sister store in Little Tokyo the store carries a wide selection of not only Japanese imported books and magazines, but specialty items for your desk or home office. Or even perfect gifts for little kids. 

It has a sizable collection of manga, anime and video game art books and Ghibli films in stock for anime fans.

Stationery up in there makes Staples look like a fool. The pen selection is still off the charts, I mean you can spend time finding the perfect writing utensil and gift for a birthday.

Too much good stuff is inside of the store, we're only sad there aren't more of the shops in LA that use space so wisely and give you so much volume to find something that you just have to get.
