  • In 1953, KINOKUNIYA pioneered the first "self-service supermarket" in Aoyama, Tokyo, where customers could choose their own products and pay at the cash register. Since then, KINOKUNIYA has continued to expand the possibilities of supermarkets by taking initiatives that are always ahead of the times.
  • This innovative Japanese supermarket chain is constantly on the look for fresh ways to connect with customers. For the first time ever, KINOKUNIYA will unveil an exciting pop-up store in Isetan Scotts and JAPAN RAIL CAFE respectively.

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach[1] - 24 February 2021 - With international travel not looking to resume soon, KINOKUNIYA has decided to bring the tastes of Japan to the travel-hungry people in Singapore through its first-ever pop-up series.
