Thanks for your visit. I am away until the 29th of December. I've pre-posted images and will respond to comments and visit your blogs after I get back.
I want to get inside to discover the treasures that are hiding :)

Beautiful! I love these types of old shops in Japan -- and I think all old book shops have a certain wonderful smell, regardless of location. Wonderful composition!

A beautiful arrangement of every lovely element...

excellent shot of this cultural aspect in the shop. Bookstores are often seen like this in China too! =D

Love the framing and how I couldn't tell if you used selective color or if the neutral tones just look like you could have desaturated or colorized only parts of the image.

Old bookstores are the best. I don't read Japanese, but I would visit the bookstore just to soak in the atmosphere (knowledge :)). Great shot.

I like all the vertical lines--in the upper part of the structure, the doorway, the books, and the horizontal lines--roof line, doorway, books. Well seen!
