Japanese Characters for Kannai


Believe it or not, this Sex Drug Shop - "Akafune" (Red Boat), is a historical attraction! It was Japan's first pharmacy dedicated to the treatment of sexual disorders and it opened in 1929. Besides selling a variety of modern amenities, it has sort of a mini-museum of antique ads, drugs, and paraphernalia. Apparently, the store was visited by General MacArthur himself!
