By the way, SI. Muroda, for this question and another one you wrote your answer directly under my question, in the "comment" box. A "comment" cannot be marked as an answer on this site. There is another way to answer the question here. Next to the question's title line there should be a large red button (for me it is labeled "ANSWER THIS QUESTION"). This will allow you to create something as an "answer", not a "comment".

OK, thanks. I guess it wasn't really a language learning question. I was looking at different words for bookstore and that entry hit me right between the eyes. I'm glad to hear that isn't a (confirmed) part of Japanese culture. :) Thanks for your response.

I heard that word for the first time .According to Wiki, it's a unconfirmed urban legend.
