    Default Where to buy in Japan?

    My friend has the Sony digital 8 camera. He wants to know where he can buy a "wide angle and infa red" lens in Hiroshima. I think the lens made by Bower (a Japanese company). He also wants to know where in Hiroshima he can buy volleyballs made by Mikasa.

    Thank you for any help you can give.

    Don't know whether this is true or not.

    More than 1 ppl told me that electronics (ex Sony) are more expensive in Japan than oversea markets. This is especially true in major cities, like Tokyo, Hiroshima, etc.

    Not sure whether this applies to ur case or not.

    I've heard that viewsonic ( a brand that makes computer monitors) get their monitors from the exact same factory SONY does... and SONY monitors are lik 2-2.5X more expensive than ViewSonic ones. Dont know if this is true either though
