Hard to beat the guy's enthusiasm. Wish he slowed down some, so we could see better.
So much to see. At least you can pause.
Kid in a candy store. Sigh.
Thanks for sharing - I’ll be in Tokyo in 2 weeks for a few days.
I've been to Akihabara twice, really is amazing the amount and quality of audio related mom and pop shops still operating, and operating profitably there.
Add to all that the great little bars that often have very good music.
The question is, other than the wide variety of choices is there anything available that would be viable for the North American buyer?
I suspect price wouldn’t be especially advantageous, shipping would be a challenge and for electronics you’d have it ensure that it would be switchable to 117vac / 60hz.
When I’m there I think I’ll consider accessories and perhaps headphones.
The used department at the first store mentioned looks interesting.
Well for one, lots of quality Japanese speakers are only available in the jdm market, such as Fostex higher end stuff.
Shipping isn't as bad as you'd think. I shipped my wife's belongings to Las Vegas for around $100/40kg. It did take like 2 months though.
Where Akihabara is located they use 110v/60Hz, it's the other half of the country that uses 50Hz.
Good to know about the voltage (and financially dangerous information).
I’ll only be bringing one bag and because of my top status with the airline I get 3 free bags.
Uh oh, this could be dangerous!
The good old days were never that good.
I've always wondered about that, since I'm too young to have experienced retail Hifi in the USA.
