A paradise of camera

A paradise of camera, Tokyo, Japan
Ginza district is undoubtedly the paradise of camera and perhaps has the most camera shops in Tokyo. The shops deal with many kinds of cameras, ranging from brand new digital cameras to antique cameras. Some small show rooms of Nikon, Canon and Fuji sit there, too. Plus, there is a big electric shop just close to GInza.

By the way, why do so many camera shops sit there?

Because in those days, some major newspaper offices were there, drawing many advertising agencies into there. So the shops were open to sell them cameras.

I advise you to go to Ginza district if you would like to see many kinds of cameras:-))

Good to know that many small shops are still there. I love wondering those shops, It's always not enough time to visit all of them. I of6ten fins some good 2nd hand equipment around there. I imagine there is big chain store somewhere to threat small shops like this, but they have more passion and knowledge, IMHO.

Your narrative is enjoyable as is your photo of the many "photo-takers" ,ie, cameras. Have not been to Ginza but will have to visit one day. My little sis (a Las Vegas performer) used to live in Tokyo when her show was there near Ginza district.

Thanks for the comments:-)

ben,
Camera biginners, like me, tend to go to big chain stores but experienced users seem to prefer small shops. Gin-ichi, a shop of name, is rather popular among the users.

coltrane,
Ginza district will never bore you! Now on the 4th floor of Channel building in Ginza hold the photo exhibition about Japanese women wearing kimono. They are rather nice.
