Needed a memory card for Cannon Camera

Was able to get some (minimal) english language help here. Prices were decent. Quite a busy, bustling store.

Went there at night time, and we loved wandering around. Looks like a great place for shopping. Lot of nice little restaurants too.

I enjoy technology and photography, but this didn't really speak to me. Prices were not that great. I was hoping to find some neat items, pick up maybe a lens, and find cheap equipment - but walked away empty handed. It reminded me of a Fry's in the USA, which is nice, but nothing stands out.

This hub was central to all our wanders in Shinjuku and gave a real 'Tokyo' vibe during the trip. Great for some pictures and a safe wander during the evenings too.

This area can't be empty, everything is moving people, cars, trains, and advertisments on buildings. It is nice to stay in a place that so much alive and you can find everyting you want.

It was fascinating to see all the electronics displayed out in abundance. My wife and I spend at least 30 mins looking at all it had to offer. Highly recommend you check it out.

Just.... Go, you will find out about this place when you get there. Shinjuku is a fine place to explore and experience at day, and a good way to chat with the locals at night except not so much if you are a non-alcoholic like me xD
