p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Camera shops around Tokyo?


I just made a similar post in Nikon forum...

I have heard that there are many good camera shops, with many used gears in good conditions in Japan, anyone here have experience with that? I will go to Tokyo (again, 2nd trip there within 4 months ) and might visit some if I have time. Any recommendations? I will be around Tokyo/Kanto area but won't have much time going too far away. Thanks.

What about Yodobashi Kamera in Shinjuku ? I went there in 2005, and it was pretty much a full block of camera stores. I do not remember specifically about used equipment though. When I was there, prices were quite high on new stuff.

Thanks. I have been to Yodobashi in Osaka before.... it used to have LOTS of film.... many different kind of Fuji films that I haven't seen outside Japan. I can't remember anything that was cheap but some itmes/accessories (like Canon 500D filter) can be easily found there (a little difficult to find / expensive in Hong Kong, I think shops prefer to sell me a dedicated macro... but I seldom travel with a dedicated macro lens!!)

Yes, exactly. It is quite interesting you mention the 500D, as I was interested in it, but would never found it and Yodobashi was the first place where I could see it, try it, and determine it was not the right item to get for me... (and I did greatly appreciate the 15 min the clerk spent with me to assess it).

With a little hesitation .. I just typed "map" "camera" "tokyo" in google and am surprised to see a camera shop came up (even with those common words) . Thanks

What are you looking for specifically? New gear or hard to find gear?
check this site out.

Last time I was in Tokyo, I used this guide and found some great stores selling older cameras and hard to find stuff.

The guy who runs this blog should be able to help. In fact, if you go through some of his albums you can find references to some places.

IIRC there were a good number of shops around the Shinjuku Yodabashi, but just getting there from the Yamanote line was an adventure in itself. Yodabashi is always worth a look for new stuff as well, IMO.

There's one in Nakano called Fujiya Camera that's really good. I think it's just one stop or so from Shinjuku on the JR Chuo line if you take the rapid train. Prices are good and everything comes with 6 month guarantee.
