What is the best new technology to buy in Japan?
« on: 17/03/2008 19:55:32 »
I'm taking a trip to Japan soon and would like to know what are the best buys in Japan as far as technology is concerned. Are there things worth buying that are only available in Japan?

Can anyone help?

I believer there is now a Blu Ray & DVD burner-reader combo now on the market on the web that they want over $1000 for. But in Japan or a duty free port it would be a lot cheaper. But drivers???

I don't even think they know the difference.

Anyway Virgin Airline have just sent me a nice magazine telling me all about the best places for gadget buying. I'm so excited. I lived in Japan 21 years ago and haven't been back since.

I wouldn't expect an American to know the difference. But Seany? Where in England do you live?
