Street stalls sell the latest high-tech computer devices, while huge electronic retailers flog televisions at duty-free prices. Head for the duty-free stores if you want to speak to English staff, and bring your passport with you to qualify for tax exempt goods. Akky (1-12-1 Soto Kanda) is one of the best shops for this.
