Hi. Im going to japan to buy myself more n guage stuff and I always go to Akihabara in Tokyo to do my shopping. Usually I would go to the tam tam hobby shop and the yodobashi akiba shopping centre. The problem is, im buying lots of trains and I wondering which place is cheaper overall? Any tips? Thanks in advance...

Try comparing online? Searching using model numbers usualy works.

Bear in mind the Yodobashi price is effectively discounted by 10% with the point card. Tamtam offers an across-the-board 30% off the manufacturer's recommended price, while Yodobashi seems to vary the discount. Both site display prices including consumption tax. As a tourist however you may be able to get the tax refunded, which Yodobashi will be better equipped for. Taking a quick, unrepresentative comparison, there's no clear winner on price.
