Giving New Meaning to "Cram" School.

There is a stretch of road in Ashikaga which is thickly populated with cram schools. The sign for this one touts their one-on-one instruction. If they're actually crammed into such tiny cubicles as these, though, I can't help but think it must be impossible to concentrate on your own studies with everybody else yammering away so nearby. If I owned a place like this, the last thing I'd want prospective customers to see is a scene like this one.
