Shinjuku Electronics Shopping Area | Yodobashi & MapCamera Tokyo


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?

    Make copies of your photos, then use the remaining change on the capsule toy vending machine. Fun, fun.
    Also, not too far from Godzilla Museum. Fun, fun, and more fun.

    Shinjuku is the bomb. Totally love Yodobashi Camera and all it’s goodies. John, I was always gravitating towards the canned coffee jidohambaiki to get the latest stuff/ BOSS, GLORIA, MILK CAFFE. Thanks for taking Us along.

    How are you seeing the chat on the phone while walking around? Totally agree about staying away from McDs and being adventurous with the food choices since there are so many great things to try. The only problem is, if a menu seriously has 150 things on it, then it's very likely not going to be all that great since the food if churned out fast and probably from frozen sources. Find restaurants that have smaller menus. Too much addition to the Pokeman crazy.

    I've heard of this place. Time square in NYC doesn't even compare to the bright lights & billboard master. Awesome live view John!

    T’s ironic that the stores, especially the photo electronic store you show, is selling the most up to date, expensive cameras and accessories . However from the outside, Americans would say all the photos and writing pasted in every square inch of the building, makes it look cheap and gaudy.

    In the US, the Yodobashi Camera melody is best known as "Battle Hymn of the Republic", often associated with the US Civil War, and based on the melody "John Brown's Body", which was based on a folk hymn.
