    N.B. some of the those shots go back to 2005. Check the now-deceased Kodak and Agfa stock.

    They had similar cases at RIT at one time. The cases were enclosed though with sliding doors and were behind the counter.

    That is all GWTW I guess.

    These are all pictures from the Yodobashi flagship store in Tokyo. Some of them are old -- the 6th picture down (with weird colours) shows a man with film coolers in front and back of him -- that's no longer the case. It's just the one long cooler against the wall and a short one at the end that remains (at least, since I was there last at the beginning of this year). I'd say that the entire film stock has gone down by 50% in the two years since I've been here. That being said, I love the fact that in Japan you can browse through the film selection, and you don't have to ask for film that's sitting behind the counter!

    I went to Wukesong Camera Market in Beijing (at the recommendations of some APUGers!) in late 2011 and while there isn't one film fridge as big as depicted in these (old) Yodobashi photos, there are about three competing film stores right next to each other and between them, they have at least this much fridge space.

    I stopped in Yodobashi in Kyoto last week. The film fridge was about the size of one of those more moderate sized ones pictured. The case was not packed full, but they had plenty of stuff. I asked the lady at the counter if they are selling more or less film over the past year. She said "oh, less!"

    I couldn't really communicate much further, but her statement kind of bummed me out.
