Taken these during my Japan trip. This post is for readers who are below the age limit but still want to have a look at some of the ero-shops but can’t wait till you’re older. For those who have visited these shops, see if you recognize any of them ^^;
Ready to let curiosity kill the cat?
Taken over at Gamers if I recall. For this section, it’s mostly eroge (PC games)and some ero artbooks. Remember seeing School Days artbook in this section.
Folks interested in ero-doujinshi might want to head over to Toranoana. They have a whole floor dedicated to it (4th or 5th floor) and if a anime series is particularly famous, you might see one or two selves just for that anime. Lots of Lucky Star doujins while I was there.
These were the Touhou section. Ero and All-ages mixed together.
Store above is… can’t remember. Was it Asobitcity?
Anyway, a full wall of ero-manga on the left and right for those who fancy. Ero-magazines on the selves in the background, just underneath the television set.
Some of the stores like these one have full sample books where you can flip though before deciding whether it’s worth the purchase or not. Others like Toranoana have sample pages of the book. Good place to visit if you need to look at a pair of eyes ^^;
Lots of eroge for you. Some are rather cheap, selling at 1000 yen or something.
Ero-doujin CG packs and soundtracks… Would make a nice present ^^;
Photo above taken in Getchu shop. Never knew they were in the ‘Click and Mortar’ merchant model (Having a offline retail establishment with a web storefront). Always though they were like amazon. To get to getchu’s shop, look for 「恵光ビル」 (Google Map).
They are located just off the main street.
Stairwell at one of the shops. Lots of promotional posters of eroges. Won’t mind taking some of these posters home and placing them up on the wall. The girls are just too cutesy!
And one of those stores with the goods in the display cabinets. That’s one of Tony Taka’s set going for 38,000yen! Also just noticed the pre-painted Asuka resin figure in the background (Top right) ^^;
Hope this gives you guys a rough idea of how the stores selling ero-stuff are like. I haven’t experienced any age verification checks before so not too sure if any of you younger-looking ones might encounter it.
These photos are well, all taken discreetly as I didn’t want to get thrown out of the stores ^^; Used the 17-40mm lens and did point-and-shoot. Might have gotten more pictures if I had a compact digital camera instead of the DSLR.
