Nice one, this sort of info.

Nice one, this sort of info. is always helpfull.

I was lucky enough to travel to Tokyo a few years ago and I can recommend to anyone GO, GO NOW!!!- YOU WON"T BE DISAPPOINTED.

I had the luck of being able to tag along with a mate of mine on one of his buying trips to Tokyo and Hong Kong (he owns an shop and finds hims self traveling to these location on a regular basis - LUCKY BASTARD!!) Anyway, he had sussed out most of the cool shops on previous trips which made it even easier to plow through my meager budget like there was no tomorrow (ahh, it's only money) and I couldn't believe the amount of great stuff these shops had in stock .

If you are thinking of going you should also try to time it with one of the swap and sells they hold at Tokyo Big Site. We timed our stay in Tokyo with the WCC (World Character Convention), which is one of the smaller swap and sells but there where still tons of dealers.
