    Shopping Trip in Tokyo

    Was in Japan on business this week and was able to stop in at the Marunouchi G-Shock store for a few minutes before heading off to the airport. As expected no bargains, but by presenting my passport, did not have to pay 8% sales tax.

    I was originally intending to pick up a Men-in-Navy Mudman, but seeing it in person, the overly bright blue color (as opposed to a more "Navy" Dark Blue) really turned me off. If I didn't already have a range man in olive I might have considered buying that one.

    Instead, bought their last (and my first!) Multiband-6 King, a GXW-56-1AJF. Also picked up a pink and white baby-g for my daughter.

    So anyway, here are a few pics, I did not have a whole lot of time, so didn't capture everything...

    Got to buy a G-Shock from a G-Shock store in Japan? It could've been any as far as I'm concerned, but that makes your first atomic king even more special! Enjoy it and thanks for sharing! :cool:

    I also find that purchasing a G-Shock directly from a G-Shock store in Japan's got to be the best experience too!

    Thanks, it was indeed a neat / special experience. I will definitely be back, will try to hit the Odaiba or Fukuoka shops on future visits. I did not get a chance to photograph the Pro-Trek offerings, they had a lot of them; many color combinations and strap variances that I have not seen before.

    the lack of multiband functions was the reason why I let go of my GX-56 so great buy on the Atomic King. I also like the Gshock store box and tin.

    I got my latest G-Shock at Yodobashi in Akihabara that way and it was the first time I had problems with a G-Shock, LOL. But thanks to the attached international guarantee I had it repaired at my local Casio service (even though the whole process took almost 10 weeks, since they had to order replacement parts directly from Japan... :P). Anyway, I'm sure it was just a coincidance ;)

    I'm sure it is as I do not have any problems with any of my G-Shocks in my history of purchasing them. But enjoy your Gs!
