Yes R/C Champ has branch in Tokyo !

Take the subway to AKIHABARA station. Also 3 other R/C shops located in the same area within 5 - 10 mins walk in between.

Champ and Super Rajicon are the best that i have found.. Both are pretty similar in price...
Good luck finding some Yokomo motors.. They have been low on stock lately.. Especially the ST!

No they don't... You could try this website.. I guess you would still need Japanese installed on your system though..

You could also try Rainbow Ten

The first day when I was at CHAMP in Tokyo, I spent about $1200USD. They have cool stuff! Then $400 the next day there at CHAMP, $500 at Futaba, and then $300 at CHAMP(again)on my last day in Japan.

Then after Japan, flew straight to Hong Kong for three weeks! Spent more on RC, hahahaha~!

Anyway, go with CHAMP and Futaba. I like then the best in Tokyo.

I am sure you will find what you need and more!

I usually shop at Champ, unless they don't have what i want.. I have found them to be the cheapest..
Super Rajicon is probably the next best, then Futaba IMO..

Champ and Super Rajicon are pretty much the same price, each having different items a little cheaper than the other.. Champ is cheaper for Yokomo which i why i usually shop at Champ
