This is Shinjuku’s Electronic Area – the West Exit known as “Nishi Guchi” and home to Yodobashi Camera, opened in 1975 and Mapcamera, the famous Japanese used camera shop known by many camera otaku. In this epiosde, we’ll go around the area and discover this “island” of shops that is vibrant when the sun goes down.
John’s advice: this area is sometimes under appreciated because Golden Gai and Kabukicho draw the most tourists.
I def think you should walk through here at night – a different vibe, more office workers and of course the famous neon of Yodobashi – gorgeous after is just rains.
Where is this?
