    just on the east side of the chuosen a near where it says 430 on that map (near the seven eleven).

    btw .. if you can, ask them what's the go with the Fuji 6x9 bessa II copy ()
    Kent, apologies for the 'jack of your post.

    pellicle, thanks for the heads-up and recommendations, but how about a name? But no rush, Shinjuku will have to wait until next week when I get to Tokyo, I'm heading for the hills. I scored 5 more rolls of Neopan at another local shop, $3.41 per roll, so I'm happy.

    Mate, I wish I could be sure, but my 'business card stack' is at home in Australia, and I'm here in Finland. I'm sorta sure its Kimura kamera, but it might not be.

    Its fairly easy to find as its on the same side of the main road as you. You might be quick to dismiss it from the outside as the main shop is upstairs. It looks just like all they sell is a some films and magazines, but stars are in the middle and upstairs are heaps of cases of stuff.

    Looking that name up on google shows another location, so either
    • they've movede
    • they've got another shop
    • I've got the name wrong


    sorry I can't be clearer :-\

    is it that obvious?

    well lets just say that while I like the skiing, Finland hasn't got much to compete for attention (don't even start me on the food)

    Pellicle and Iwagoshi,

    There is a Kimura in Shinjuku. There's a map at the link below:

    http://www.kimura-camera.net/shinjuku/index.html

    Not sure if that's the one you're talking about, but there it is.

    I'll be up in the Shinjuku area raiding the camera shops in the next week or so myself. There's a HUGE Yodobashi in Yokohama now that I swing through frequently (it's, like, on the way to my house from the station), but it doesn't stock much LF stuff, so Shinjuku it is!

    Pellicle ... you really need do a shopping trip over here ...

    Hi there,

    If you are in Tokyo and want to get in touch with those who do this sort of photography, you should visit PGI in Shibaura. It is a little difficult to find the gallery, but if you go there, talk to Nishimaru-san who runs a Japanese site on alternative processes.

    Hopefully he can help you to get you connected to others.

    Warmly,
    Tsuyoshi

    Well ... I finally did it ...

    Not sure if this is the place to post this, but at least it's not OT.

    So I ventured up to Shinjuku yesterday and snagged me a 4x5 Tachihara and a Fujinon W 150 f/5.6 lens ... plus a few film holders, etc.

    Here she is! (Click the thumb for a proper look ... don't shoot me for shooting the Tachihara with my Leica M8 ... not much light ... not much DOF).

    Hello from a German in Japan (Sapporo), living here for more than 4 years. LF photography sounds tempting, especially in this country ... I usually use either a (film) Leica or MF (Hasselblad or Rolleiflex). Interested in your results with the Tachihara !
