btw, thisis a great blog that summarizes RFID news in Japan - they are really moving ahead with deployments in that country


Jinbo-cho is a district in Tokyo, which people call a "bookstore town." A new bookstore, whose books are all RFID-tagged, opened in Jinbo-Cho on October 12. Nikkei calls it a "Future Bookstore."

The actual name of the bookstore is Book House Jinbo-Cho and is operated by Showa-Tosho, who is a distributor of Shogakkan Group.

For the moment, the shop doesn't care so much about ROI etc. Sounds like they just want to test RFID in a real retail environment.
