Kinokuniya celebrated the new book releaseJuly 19, 2020
Yesterday, Kinokuniya Shinjuku celebrated the release of Murakami’s new book “The First Person Singular”.
During the state’s emergency period in April, bookstores were excluded from the shutdown list, as they were considered as essential facilities for our lives. However, the large bookstores like Kinokuniya voluntarily shut down themselves and offered small bookshops the way to survive in a difficult time. Hope the pandemic will go soon and you will come and see what the protagonists of Murakami novels experienced.
