In pictures: Inside a Japanese PC shop

Nov 2, 2012
  The first thing you notice is the stock presentation. You walk into an average PC store in Australia and, depending on size, you either get a mass of product jamming every shelf, or you get huge open spaces with almost no product in it at all. If you’re lucky, you get a few display cases with a few motherboards or other expensive items in there. 

This is clearly not the case here. Like most places in Japan, computer shops pride themselves on their space-efficient and beautiful stock presentation. Note the rows of perfectly stacked and laid-out motherboards.
