16A Architects recently designed a new bar called Tsumamiya. It’s a cozy little izakaya that combines 2 of my favorite things eating/drinking and reading. The store is lined with bookshelves with all sorts of books to keep you company while you eat. You can put them back when you are done, or, if you feel the inclination to, you are welcome to purchase any of the books when you pay for your meal.

The door to the bathroom is even a sliding bookshelf so you can browse while you wait. And yes, the bathroom is certainly equipped with reading material, which is kind of gross if you ask me.
