BIC Camera is a huge electronics chain store with about 40 locations throughout Japan. They sell everything from home electronics to car navigation systems, washer dryers to iPhones, Beauty and Health products to PCs and Printers, and little known to most – toys. Their toy section is filled with famous brands like Takara Tomy, Bandai, Mattel, People, Kumon, Lego and more.
Enjoy browsing through the Japanese educational toys from Kumon and People or building toys like Tomica, Nano blocks, and Lego. Kamen rider action figures, Tomica cars and trains, Pla-rail, and trading cards are popular with boys. Parlor beads, dolls (Meru, Lica, Barbie and the Sylvanian Family) and crafting are popular with girls. 3D doodling pens are also a crowd pleaser. One of our favorite gifts to give friends are the Japanese Shinkansen / Bullet train designed utensils and chopsticks (less than 500 yen each).
BIC Camera Tokyo has locations in Ikebukuro, Yurakucho, Shinjuku, Shibuya, Tachikawa and Hachijoji. Stop into the BIC Camera closest to you.
