    probably because you guys are from out of Japan, and they refunded the tax? (5% tax)

    although not able to go in to the HQ itself, but it was worth it if you are in Tokyo. it isn't very far and will take an hour or so. very much recommended for any badminton fanatic.
    Yeah, that place is like the holy place for any badminton people

    You still have a chance to sneak out and buy some stuff before you leave !!

    Buy BG88ti. The cheapest in the world. Don't know whether you can get discount.

    I'm surprised that yonex doesnt have a museum that show and highlight their historical rise to what they are today.

    here is one for toyota
    http://www.toyota.co.jp/Museum/data_e/c04_01.html

    I mean even toyota, honda, yamaha, etc don't dominate their respective market like yonex do in badminton

    HOLY COW!!

    My eyes just went O.O"" DAMNIT. Must own yonex. OMG so many racquets, strings, and what not. This is defintely more impressive than Bluejeff's Badminton Cabinet :P . But heck.

    Kwun were your hands shaking when you were taking pictures of the strings? Seems blurry. Do they still have BG66 up there??

    upon asking and lots of sign language, the ppl in the showroom told us that the "Yonex Office" (ie. Yonex HQ) is just a short walk behind the showroom. we walked over there and there it was, a tall narrow building with a big unmistakable blue/green Yonex sign right in front. we only took pictures though, as the woman told us, "businessmen only."

    here are some pictures we took to share with you guys.
    OMFG!!!

    I can't believe my eyes!!!

    I''ll be in Tokyo on Wednesday!!! Thats a must see tourist attraction!!!!

    The good thing is I know some japanese, so I might be able to understand what the salesperson at the store is talking about.

    Thanks for the information Kwun!!

    I was actually trying to find it just before you put this post up.

    Lol... I assume even the 3 pairs of socks are for her?

    Kwun, you must be feeling like a kid in a candy store, neh?

    I'm think some of the BC'ers are changing their keyboards at this moment - the drool spoilt the keyboard. Darn it, those rows and rows of racquets... AH!!!!

    The Yonex HQ is not quite what I imagined it to be, I thought it'd be more like a Google or Microsoft kind of office. I guess making racquets and golf clubs isn't quite a lucrative business.

    Hi Kwun, are those yonex catalogs or they are magazines/books about baddy? They are in Japanese I suppose.
