Synopsis

Enam belas toko yang tidak biasa di kawasan Kawabata Shopping Arcade di Fukuoka, Jepang, ditampilkan dalam film ini. Film ini merupakan potret antropologis dari para pemilik dan pegawai toko di sebuah jalanan perbelanjaan tua di pusat kota Fukuoka. Karakteristik yang berbeda namun saling terkait dari berbagai toko ini terungkap dalam kegiatan toko yang biasa-biasa saja.

A selection of 16 extraordinary shops found in Kawabata Shopping Arcade in Fukuoka City, Japan, are featured in this work. This is an anthropological portrait of the shop owners and staffs in an old shopping street found in downtown Fukuoka City. The intertwining yet distinct characteristic of various shops is unraveled through the most mundane in-shop activities (source: mediawavefestival).
