The entire area around the Shinjuku Train Station or JR, is a shopping paradise. Department stores, electronic stores, cameras, clothes, food, and restaurants galore. On the west exit side, Odakyu dominates the area. The department store is right at the station entrance/exit. Odakyu HALC and Bic Camera are just across from it. Odakyu is an upscale department store. The annex,... More

You can buy many things there from toys, stationaries, to electronics. We spent time looking at action figure toys, and stationaries.

As this mega store was immediately across from our Hyatt Hotel free shuttle bus stop, we ended up looking around in here. Great selection of everything electronic, not just cameras. Worth some of your time.

Not as big and grandious though as Akihabara but the place do promise good deals. The Bic Camera shop is the best place to see... occupying multiple floors in a big building which can definitely quench your thirsts for electrknic gadgets. Tiu can also get the unlimited train passes for tourists in the said shop at the second floor.

There are many "camera" stores here. For sure, you can get an excellent deal on a camera, and there is every kind of camera body, lens, and accessory to go and play with, test, and see which you like the most. But in addition the larger stores (like Yodobashi) carry PCs and accessories, cell phones, pens, stationery, rice cookers, tabletop... More
