    There are films you can get here that you can't easily get other places. (Natura 1600)

    However, I've found the standard stuff to be the same here as in the states. And honestly, The stuff more exclusive to Japan hasn't been worth writing home about.

    I buy all my film from the states. (Unless for small quick buys.)

    Possibly Fujifilm sells other cameras in Japan which I never saw here, besides Fujifilm Natura Classica:

    I think this is because in Japan there still is more demand for film and therefore launching a film product is less risky economically speaking. When you make a new product you must spend money in a launch campaign, you must convince dealers to stock it in quantities that make sense etc.

    I think this will slowly change in the future, when internet retailers such as Amazon will gain more importance for film distribution. I have already switched my purchases to online shops (not just for photographic supply I should add).

    If you search Amazon you can find Fujifilm Natura Classica, or the cameras which I linked in my previous post. They are sold by a Japanese retailer or by Fuji themselves and delivered to your address. This might be a very interesting way to sell film (provided buyers accept the idea of buying 20 - 30 rolls at a time) and cameras. Imagine the risk for a shop in putting in stock a new medium format film camera. Online retailers have a hugely smaller inventory risk.
