    The meat is really sweet. But the price is really steep. Oh well, once in a lifetime experience.

    NW, I drop an email to Map camera. The SU800 is 28,000 Yen (tax excluded), slightly cheaper only. I am checking out Akiharaba later.

    My friend was there last year. Took some moving shots also.
    Want to organise a trip?

    NW, bad news, Akiharaba is more expensive.

    Went to Map Camera, almost bought it at 28,000 Yen for a used set but the manual was in Japanese, the sales person wants me to go the the head office to get the English manual tomorrow, so rejected the offer.

    Went to Yobadashi, was quoted 29,400 Yen, asked for tax rebate and was quoted 28,000 for a new set and a change to English manual immediately. So just bought it.

    Just ask them on the spot.
    Tax rebate for a single receipt of more than 10,000 Yen spending.
    Actually I bought quite a few stuffs, on the first receipt which payment was already made.
    Ask the guy about the SU800. Got tempted by the price, then ask for Tax rebate and also ask if I can get tax rebate for those items I bought earlier...

    Luckily the sales person is really patient with me and still entertain me.

    They just need your passport for processing.

    Very easy to hit 10k unless you are buying small items like hotshoe cover and filters...
