Australian adaptor in Shibuya?

Just arrived in Shibuya to find that the adaptor doesn't work (3 pins not 2, and the apartment only has 2 pins sockets).

Where can we buy the right adaptor in Shibuya, and any idea on what it should cost?

Thanks heaps.

Go to an electronics shop like Yodobashi Camera or BicCamera they should have adapters), if not, you should be able to buy a powerstrip that has three inputs from two.

Alternately headver to Akihabara and you'll usually find what you need.

I bought my two adapters in kyoto for around 800 yen for both. On a trip to akihabara, I remember seeing it selling for 300 yen each out of the packaging in a tray.
