    Wink G-Shock hunting Japan

    I just found these photo's on my iPhone...



    I guess on the way to a G-Shock hunt...



    Actually Yodobashy Kyoto (opposite of the station) did not have a large collection of G-Shocks. You were better off at the Big Camera (Osaka side of the station). I seem to have been trying to take some pictures with my "old" iPhone 3G (the software updates from OS 4 killed the speed and more of my phone). This is the only one that did not fail. Took it while the shop manager was on an other counter packing my GF-8250





    "Take care of the difference!"

    Cheers,

    See the focus on the eyes of the man on the train? He's also going to buy a G-Shock!

    Nothing to do with taxes - which is 5% in Japan. It's the exchange rate at work, as well as the cost of things locally. $1= ¥83 right now. Four years ago it was $1=¥120

    Hey Sjors, did you go through Akihabara or Shibuya yet?

    Anyway, was looking through a few g-shock posts on the Japanese blog site ameblo and saw these images:

    Wow. I don't have what it takes to wear those colors on a watch. Oh snap! Those black watches come with their own merkin! The Japanese are so ahead of us in watch technology.

    I wouldn't call colors and merkin "technology." More like fashion and taste.

    Yodobashi Tokyo is huge! Softmap is also a good alternative to buy G-Shock.
