Bic Camera- Japan’s Best Shopping!

Bic Camera is a true Japanese institution. Just hum a few bars of the theme song and someone will shout “Bic Camera”! Despite the name however Bic Camera is not only cameras. In fact it’s Japanese best overall electronics/computer/toys/ alcohol & computer store. And it’s everywhere- downtown Tokyo, downtown Osaka, downtown Kyoto- even Narita & Haneda airports have Bic Camera stores.

And to whet the appetite further they are continually expanding. Last count we took they had 48 stores- with lots more if you count the Sofmap subsidiary chain of shops.

Shopping HQ- Downtown Tokyo

The flagship store remains that of Yurakucho Honkan (near Tokyo station) and offers a cornucopia of choice. There’s no point in us even trying to help you with this one. Quite often there’s a loud man outside on a microphone screaming the latest offers but with multi-level high intensity shopping awaiting you we’ll keep our message simple.

    on Bic Camera Japan, there is an Olivia Newton-John cd called 40/40, it advertises a song called “Ballad of Autumn wind,” I would like to know if it really is on the Bic camera cd, because everywhere else that has this cd does not mention the song at all. Any information will be appreciated.
    Sincerely

    • Hi Martin,
      I am guessing we’ve not responded to you in time. However it is common for CDs sold in Japan to have bonus tracks
      that were not released on albums sold outside of Japan. I know many foreign collectors try to buy the Japanese covers to get access to unreleased tracks elsewhere. While it doesn’t answer your question it might help you decide whether or not to make the purchase or not.
      All the best,
      Declan
