Online shopping site in Japan

Which online shopping site in Japan is most user friendly for foreigners, i.e., has English service and most streamlined? I tried a few and when I click for an English version, it directs me to their foreign site which will charge exorbitant overseas shipping charges (as goods are shipped from outside Japan).

    By using Google Chrome browser with instant on-line translation makes it relatevly easy to shop on most of Japanese web sites. Amazon.co.jp is probably the best choice overall. By buying a gift certificate in any convenience store, you can do easy shopping even without credit card.

    I agree with the others here. I think amazon.jp is pretty easy to navigate with minimum Japanese, and can easily calculate postage to your Japanese address.

    Amazon JP has a lot of English on its basic platform, other than the descriptions of items that the sellers type themselves which you can try to Google translate. Shipping is great on amazon JP too.

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

Stand Up Paddling in Japan

Hi, does anybody know of a group for Stand Up Paddling around the Tokyo area. My Japanese is still poor so I need a group that has English speakers. I've checked MeetUp but there isn't anything there. I have emailed Yokohama SUP Club for information. I'm looking for regular paddle buddies to explore the rivers, lakes and seas around Tokyo area and possibly further afield.
