Default Hobby shops in JAPAN

Hello Im here in Japan near Tokyo and was wondering if anybody knew of any hobby shops they would recommend that I go to. I found Champ RC and Yatabe Arena.

Thanks Bryan

Take a JR line from Tokyo station to Akihabara. There are 4 big rc car shops at Akihabara
1) RC Champ (cheap yokomo products)
2) Rakusei model
3) Futaba sangyo (cheap Futaba products)
4) Super radicon (cheap HPI, KO, etc. products)

Akihabara is a heaven for RC freak like me. Where else can you get 4 big shops within walking distance from one another. I kept on thinking which shelf should I go first in every shop stated above.

If you plan to shop at these 4 shops at Akihabara, dont go there on Monday. Only Futaba sangyo will be open on Monday. I normally spend at least 1 hour in every shop, anything less will be a regret once you're flying back out of Japan.

Default Hobby Shops (Japan)

Any hobby shops in the Kagoshima-ken prefecture? I'll be living there for a couple years and would like to source out a few hobby shops to go to.

Cheers.
