Osawa and Arrow look like lots of fun! 
Thanks for the virtual (and too brief) vacation and shopping trip!!!

Agree!
Thank you Richard for all of these shops and the good advice. I may be visiting Tokyo at the end of the year and now have targets for camera browsing.
Alas I suspect that I will be spending more time at the Tower Records (we don't have CD shops anymore here) and Ishibashi Music branches

Maybe we can get together for yet another NG off-meeting?

I can also show you around the musical instrument shops in Tokyo.

I don't think I'll ever go to Tokyo (ones never know though), but your shop visits is a delight and reminds me of some old shops that used to be Boulevard Beaumarchais in Paris (Nowadays it's much more fancy and uppity). Thanks for sharing  ;)

Thank you for posting these reports! Very tempting environment you live in  :o 8)


Must be hard to cope with  ;D


For instance:
This is a Nikon SP (reissue) that has never been opened it comes with the reissued classic W-Nikkor 3.5cm f/1.8 and from what I can gather, this is considered to be a nice price! If I can just afford this thing, I would have bought it in an instant!


I didn't even knew they reissued the 35mm 1.8  :o

Sorry, could not resist, even though it's not the most interesting Nikon shop:
