“Good place to look for 2nd hand treasures”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2012

The small buildings behind the big Yodobashi or Big Camera buildings are house to many 2nd hand camera shops. We have found a couple selling old cameras - and most products are in very good conditions. Perfect location for enthusiasts' treasure hunt...

If you can't get it here it probably doesn't exist. Yodobashi Camera ヨドバシ カメラhas been here forever and sells every camera and accessory from the cheapest up to professional gear. The other camera shops like Doi Camera and Sakura are great, too. Yodobashi has several shops and a range of photo service and sells, electronics, watches, and computer equipment, etc.

The local area has many department stores over and beside the station and in Meiji Dori, and thousands of restaurants. Tokyu Hands Department store at the east end of the station is great for handicrafts and DIY. Kinokuniya bookshop in Meiji Dori sells Japanese books and has a huge range of books in English on Japanese culture. This whole area is lively and Kabuki-cho at night is fun for naughty bars and shops!

Very good selection of eletronic and camera shops.
Prices are decent with some good offers avaliable. Service in the area is great.
Yodobashi camera offers a 3 or 4 story building only containing everything your photophilia might demand.
