    Default Japan Trip: Anything to buy there?

    Going to Japan for a business trip (Tokyo + Osaka). Just wondering if in general, camera equipment there is cheap or not? What to expect there? Where to go? Hopefully someone here has the answers to my queries...

    Well, if you are looking at P&S stuff, may be able to find a shop or two that has special offers. May not come with international warranty though. If you are looking for more PRO stuff, its cheaper in Singapore at the currrent forex rate of the YEN which is expected to prevail.

    You may find easy availablity for third party brands and stuff. Will be heading to Tokyo in 2 weeks time and picking up a set of Kenko Extension Tubes myself.

    Just came back from there last week. In general, the prices there are almost the same as in Singapore. However due to the currency differences and they are on the higher side now. It becomes more economical for us to get stuff from Singapore.

    You can check out Ginza area, got quite a few shop there. Or you can take a look at "Biggu Pi Ka" @ Shinjuku JR Station at the West Exit, it is above Odakyu Level 4.
