I found Kinokuniya in Singapore. It was fabulous, but a little tricky. Everything was shrinkwrapped, and I can't read Japanese. I managed to muddle thru. I made mistakes.
That white lace book with red lettering? It has a picture of the knitting princess they featured in Knitter's a few years back (#82). I was really disappointed to get back to my hotel room and find it was a "how to knit" primer. Blah.
When I told my brother I went there, he said you could get the staff to show you the books. But he just opens them himself and makes a mess. That sounds about right.
They also had a great Borders that had a new British knitting magazine I hadn't seen before!
I love Japanese magazines because the projects are just so wearable. Seriously, look at this!
