in Tokyo, Japan
31, May 2008
I spend a week in Fujinomiya,
Japan (on the foot of mount Fuji). In the weekend I moved to
Shinjuku in Tokyo. This is where all the action happens. The
subway station in Shinjuku is the most busiest in the world.
Get off from the West exit of the station and you will see all
the major mall and big discount electronic stores. If you want to take a look at some of the good
Japanese department stores, here are some of my suggestions.
Just after you exit the west side of the station you will
see Odakyu, very close to this store is Keio, Lumine and
Mylord. A short 10minute walk will get you to Takashimaya
time square for some high end shopping.
Before you start exploring Shinjuku it's a good idea to get
a local attraction map from the tourist office in Shinjuku
station. This map comes in pretty handy as many Japanese
people don't speak English.
For those electronic gadget freaks like me. Never miss the 3
big discount electronic shops. Within couple of minutes walk
from the west exit of Shinjuku station is Yodobashi Camera,
Bic Camera and Sakuraya. Most product sold here are for
local use. The camera's are not very cheap either. Just
enjoy the window shopping. B&H camera in New York will
easily beat the price.
