The Book Store
The bookstores in Japan have really tall shelves and sooo many books, including anime books! This is the more serious section of History (it was the only aisle with nobody standing around reading the books). Many people like to waste some time by reading a book in the book store. The employees don't really like this, but when everybody is doing this what can they do? Shoo out every potential customer so they never come back? Yeah, right. This bookstore actually had a section to sit and read the books called a "Book Salon", never seen one of those before!
