Buy electronics in Japan 日本で電子機器を購入する

In high-tech paradise

It's no secret that Japan is the land of unique and excellent electronic appliances. So where can I find the best deals and what else should know?

In this Electronic Heaven, the area offers everything from the biggest brands to small mom-and-pop shops in a cheerful and cheeky atmosphere.

The must-see stores for bargains are Yodobashi Akiba. Japan's largest, spanning 9 floors, sells everything from home appliances, computers, and toys. Not far, you will find the Bic Camera, another Akiba landmark.

The Shinjuku district is also a great place to shop as it offers the same big brand stores as well as smaller stores.
