Day 136: Old haunt

Day 136: Old haunt

Wednesday, May 17, 2017

20 years ago, before MySpace or online shopping, this tacky wine merchant was home to an unassuming, almost muted cultural hub known as Japan Book Plaza. It was the place to go for Japanese books and magazines, as well as language learning resources.

But if you knew the product serial code, they’d let you order ANYTHING YOU WANTED FROM JAPAN. Without any mark-up. No questions asked.

I miss those days.
