Film Cameras in Tokyo

So I'm looking for a SLR film camera (maybe Minolta or Nikon). I've seen tons on Amazon but I prefer seeing the actual product first before buying it. Also, I want to look for better deals. For sure there are tons in Akihabara but I don't know where to start looking in there. And I wanna know if there are areas I can check other than Aki. Thank you. :D

    Don't go to Akihabara... Shinjuku is known as the camera capital of Japan (and probably the world to be honest) for the sheer amount of camera shops in the area. Luckily, most of them are concentrated within 1-2 blocks of Shinjuku Station West Exit. To start you off, some of the best shops for secondhand include: Kitamura Camera*, Lemon-sha*, MAP, Alps Do, and Camera Box. I've put an asterisk next to the shops which are chains, meaning they have locations in other parts of Japan/Tokyo. So, you can search it on the map and see if there's a location closer to you... Obviously, they're going to all stock different stuff so it would be worth paying a visit to each to see what they have! You can also check out Nakano, which is a short train ride away from Shinjuku on the Chuo line. Fujiya Camera has a great selection of used stuff! Good luck with your camera hunting! SLRs are super easy to find and you'll be able to pick one up anywhere.

    My friend who was into film cameras while he was in Japan started by joining facebook groups for people into it, and there were often people selling their older/extra cameras. So that might be a chance to meet up, see the thing before buying it.

    My husband is into film photography and he told me Lucky Camera shop in Shinjuku is a great place to go for film cameras. Also we just found one in a recycle shop that was in fantastic shape for only 1000¥ yen

Bathtub cleaning

Any advice for cleaning a japanese bathtube? Somehow my bathtub has many weired stains and discoloration after I didn´t used it for long time. Normal bathroom cleaning spray doesn´t work really.

Mentos flavors in Japan

Been chewing away on plenty of Mentos in recents weeks (for reasons that are not important here) but I'm getting sick of just the cola, grape, and mint flavors. In years past I alway remembered there being a whole bunch of Mentos flavors available in Japan but now I can only find the three. If you've seen any other than those mentioned above, can you tell me where?

Kotatsu advice

For this year's winter I want to be as prepared as possible...we've already got heated rugs in some rooms but I'd like to get a kotatsu for another room we have. Any recommendations for brands, or things I should consider when shopping for one? Also, are there any without an exposed heating element? I've got little ones in the house so the safer the better!
