Yodobashi Camera Akiba


Yodobashi Camera Akiba is our number one recommended store for shopping in Akihabara, Being only a minute away from the station and having a vast variety of products are only a some of the reasons to pay it a visit. The prices here are rather low compared to other big retail giants as it competes to offer the lowest prices among all electronics retail stores. 

Today we are visiting the camera corner on third-floor where they sell digital, film and video cameras as well as camera equipment. On the same floor, you can also find watches, beauty and sports products. 

It is a big corner with all main Japanese brands including Canon, Casio, Olympus, Nikon, Fujifilm, Panasoni, Pentax, Sigma and many more foreign products. 


It is a great place to find the newest attractive products at a great price. Also, they have a few fun products like these cameras with Hello Kitty, Gudetama and Mikimaus design. However, when it comes to collector pieces, smaller second-hand stores are a better choice.
