    Default Yonex shops in Tokyo/Kyoto

    Hi Everyone

    My first posting. How exciting
    Anyway, was wondering if anyone knew of good (i.e. cheap) shops that stock Yonex gear (in particular rackets) in Tokyo or Kyoto.
    Am planning a trip there and wanted to plan ahead.

    Cheers

    2-yota and I went to Tokyo and Kyoto last October. With our SO's going left and right into all fashion shops, we were starved of racket shops so we were in a heightened state on the look-out for any shops (we also googled when we had access).

    Kyoto had only a few shops but in general their prices are higher than Tokyo and the selection was less. One of the Yonex stores we wanted to see was closed for that day of the week.

    Two chain shops we saw in Tokyo that have decent selection are Wembley and Windsor.
    There's locations in Ikebukuro, Shinjuku and Shibuya (couldn't find the shops here though but that's our fault).

    If you've been to Hong Kong, the prices in Tokyo are not considered cheap by a far margin. Although, they have the JP models...

    Even though prices in Japan are more expensive than HK, it is still cheaper than New Zealand : )

    Yup.. Armortec900 P/T NZ coded is about 310NZD at the shop at NorthHarbour Badmtinon, but in Japan, they're about 270NZD.
    I buy all my badminton equipment from Japan except my shoes because my feet are over-sized..
    saytani, I suggest you to buy alot of strings in Japan such as the nbg98, bg88ti, bg65power, etc which are not available in NewZealand.. Buy them for about 13$ each, sell them for 20$ each in NewZealand ( a pack of bg65 costs 20NZD in NZ ). Great business opportunity lol.
