View Full Version : Tokyo LF Shops?

29-Dec-2015, 21:57
Apologies in advance if this is already posted or this is the incorrect forum section - I literally just joined 15 mins ago. I'm new to LF (Chamonix just ordered) and find myself traveling to Tokyo for a few days. Any recommendations of LF photo shops I should check out while in town? (Special interest in any Rodenstock sellers.)

For what its worth I have found this info : http://www.digitalversus.com/cameras/made-japan-wonderful-world-of-tokyo-s-camera-shops-a2175.html But looking for LF specific recommendations. Thxs.

Uchinomi Camera can get you whatever you need delivered to your hotel, but it is an online store.
Send them an email, as their website only shows a fraction of their stock.

If you need film, Yodobashi is good. http://www.yodobashi.com/index.html

Pretty shocked at the price of film in Japan now. Wow!

Afraid it's been a long time since I was there, but although Tokyo is quite the mecca for second-hand 35 and medium format and now digital, I don't think it's ever been the go-to place for German LF gear. That said, you might check out Lemon-sha, but be sure to inquire as to what is available in particular shops, not just in their online listing.

I'm not sure if there's an actual shop behind this or not...
