Tenjin Inter Media Station

The Inter Media Station building in Tenjin, Fukuoka, is not much to look at from the outside.

Basically its another shopping and entertainment complex.

I am not much of a shopper myself, in fact I loathe shopping. I would rather have sharp sticks poked in my eyes. But in Japan, perhaps more than most places, shopping and consumption are elevated to levels I would equate to religious.

Which is why these kind of places seem to be Cathedrals of Consumption.

The receptionists/information counter girls were something else too. With fake fur stoles and fake flowers in their hair are they the miko of a new religion?
