Kitamura Camera has just opened a new shop in Shinjuku, Tokyo, and it is six stories of pure bliss. Like a Disneyland for photographers, it’s got everything a photo geek could want. New cameras, vintage cameras, an entire floor dedicated to Leica and rarities, multiple studio spaces, event spaces, a repair facility, a book shop and reading area, and a Starbucks coffee shop – this new flagship Kitamura Camera is simply overwhelming.
I reached out to Kitamura Camera and they were kind enough to provide me with photos of the stunning new store. These beautiful shots of the new space were shot by Satoshi Asakawa, and are published here with permission.
Take a look, and feel free to daydream of finding and buying that mint condition Fuji TX-1 you’ve always wanted. That’s what I did. And once this pandemic eases up, why not book a flight to Tokyo, visit Kitamura, and make that dream a reality?
