    Anyone know where to buy 120 film in Kyoto?

    I'm off to Kyoto for a week's holiday and am wondering if anyone knows where to buy some film. I do not want to spend a long time trying to track down a store that still has film so any pointers are greatly appreciated!

    I got note from a Twitter follower that Yodobashi Camera or Bic Camera near Kyoto Station should have 'em. If not, he says try Sanjou Sakuraya near the intersection of Kawaramachi & Takoyakushi (near "downtown" Kyoto). Good luck, and go to Fushimi Inari to photograph the clichéd, yet beautiful nonetheless arches:

    Absolutely they do - when I was in Kyoto in June, both shops had a healthy fridge stock! I bought Tri-X in 120, but there was heaps of Kodak and Fuji film in ALL sizes.

    Love Yodas and Bic Camera; I turn into a (big) kid in a toy store every time I'm in Japan.

    Do not go into BIC, send someone else in for you otherwise you'll never come out.

    The same could be said of Yodobashi, or Tokyu Hands (esp. the d.i.y. section), for that matter...
