Yodobashi Camera has finally come to Kyoto with a megastore in front of Kyoto Station right behind Kyoto Tower. It opened on Nov. 5, 2010.
Called Kyoto-Yodobashi, the huge 6-story building looks similar to Yodobashi’s megastore in Akihabara and Osaka. Besides selling camera equipment and consumer electronics, the building also houses other shops and restaurants. Store hours are 9:30 am to 10 pm.
It will give major competition to BIC Camera also next to Kyoto Station.
