      Travelling to Japan : Anything MUST buy let me know

      Hi Guys,

      I am traveling to JAPAN for 7 days. Any recommends for electronics or stuff to DEFO buy from there.

      And if anyone wants something if possible I will carry. Caution not too much weight and not too costly. AND NOT easily available in INDIA

      Try out this Japanese Layered Cake. It will somewhat redefine your definition of Cake.

      You can get it parceled and it survives the flight journey and couple of days after that in refrigerator.

      Also tryout a night stay in tube or capsule hotels if you like.

      Get an AE86 with the Group A 4AGE and a Fujitsubo MC50 to boot.

      Might be a little expensive

      You could bring a Macademia based Japanese sweet (sorry i do not remember its name or even remember how it looks). It is mildly sweet, but very delicious. It has very short shelf life so you should get it on last day before your trip back home.

      My last visit to Japan was way back in 2010, I am sure Japanese have been innovating a lot since last 8 years. so i am not aware of common minimum denominator factor in Japanese electronics market as of now. so i was thinking some one else might tell you what to buy. ... for normal electronics stuff, Indian market would be cheaper due to scale advantage, Japanese companies have not been price competitive in recent times.... anyway here you go...

      here is list of things which i think are competitive in Japanese market

      (1) Rugged Smart Phones
      (2) Miniature Cameras for surveillance
      (3) Lenses for DSLRs
      (4) Personal Healthcare Monitoring Devices: BBT Thermometers, ECG Monitor, BP Monitor.... etc etc.
      (5) Robots, you can get an assistant for you, you may have to teach her Punjabi and BC/MC wala Hindi though
      (6) Drones, though check about Drone Regulations in India
      (7) Smart Watches, Fitness Bands etc
      (8) High-end Home Theaters
      (9) Karaoke Equipment
      (10) High Density Lithium - Ion Batteries
      (11) SMT Pick & Place Machines
      (12) Machines to make Machine tools
      (13) Optical Instruments like Telescopes for Star Gazing etc.
      (14) Gaming Devices
