Tomato Books in Hong Kong - shop sign

A Japanese bookshop in Hong Kong

On a recent trip to Hong Kong, my traveling companions and I found a lovely shop Japanese bookshop. As a moderate consumer of Japanese TV shows, Japanese movies and the occasional j-rock band, I felt duty-bound to check it out. I didn’t speak Japanese so I didn’t own any Japanese books (except for a few manga titles in English), but I did collect magazines that featured, uh, boys of important cultural significance.
