Luminaire s a “gay shop”, mostly gay male porn, but some non-porn books and mags and assorted rainbow stuff. Japanese guy magazines Attitude and Fabulous! are sold here, as well as Happy Swing, a local Sapporo zine. Anise is one of the few Japanese publications for lesbians and bisexual women (for magazines like Out and Curve go to Tower Records in Pivot).
