The shop is on 8 floors, you can buy pretty much anything you could possibly imagine in this store, and probably quite a few things you never really knew existed.

There are a few blocks of shops selling all the latest adult toy, porn DVDs, Hentai. The shops are not only one or two stories tall. The largest one is as high as 8 stories high with each floor having specialized items for certain group of people. What we did was browse every floor, without making purchases. These hentai is favorites among the locals, its something unique as it is not allowed in our country. But in Japan, it is normal which every major book stores have a section on it.
