Nestled in the heart of the main street marketplace, the Ichihara Bookstore is an old and crooked structure pressed between two newer high-rise tenement buildings. The old glass windows and creaking wooden door on the shop's front give it a rustic and old-world feel. Catering to both antique books and newer prints, the narrow aisles and tall shelves are packed full of literature. A single shelf for periodicals lies near the front counter, while signage both out front by the register and in the back of the store indicates that tarot card reading is done on-site at request for ten dollars per reading.

Behind the old and weathered wooden counter that contains the register and a small stack of reserved books, a narrow wooden staircase leads upwards to a black wooden door with peeling paint, revealing red paint in narrow strips beneath, a rope crossing in front of that door hangs with a small sign that reads, "Private".

Major IC Events


  • A mischievous white cat with dark spots above his eyes named Gabriel hangs around the store, favored pet of the owner. Rumor has it she named him after someone.
  • The Bookstore may or may not be cursed. Wendy was murdered at home, during her stint as a part time bookstore clerk. Kaylee and Teo both got the H5N10 while working as part time clerks. Hokuto was murdered after closing just outside the store. And this was after she went on a murderous rampage as a nightmare stalker known as the Nightmare Man. And the cat she owned is creepy and named after another serial killer, specifically Sylar.
