Taken in the shopping arcade under the Hankyu Umeda train station, Osaka.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

@Art Monkey: Thank you Art Monkey!

Mike Cash from Kiryu, Japan

Very nice. Those old-fashioned used bookstores are interesting to browse, but a nightmare if you're looking for anything even remotely specific.

@Mike Cash: A complete mystery to me with my poor Japanese ability! There are a few old bookshops in this one small section of the arcade - quite well-known apparently.
