    Hot May, cool and wet July, hot August, hot September, a direct hit from a strong typhoon on Tokyo, a warm start to October, but cooling a bit next week..... and This means it's time for the annual thread Buying Ski/Snowboard gear in Tokyo for Season 2019/2020. I guess I've been doing this for about 10 years now....

    I went to the Tokyo ski shop area last weekend, about 4 weeks earlier than I did last year.
    Some shops have changed over their gear, and moved their snow gear down to the ground floor.

    The AUD has been sitting stable for a few months, but worse than last year at about 73 yen/AUD, so the gear in Japan is again more expensive than compared to last year.
    Added to this, the 8% GST has jumped to 10% on October 1st.... I guess it doesn't make all that much difference, when compared to the worse exchange rate

    London Sports outlet is still the cheapest place in the whole area.
    Two years ago, the old store lease was up, and they moved two doors down in to the tiny location, but they opened a new store just down the lane, in the basement (see map). I bought a couple of pairs of skis for friends there last January. The tiny main street store has brand name sports shoes and clothes, and some snow wear upstairs, along with helmets.
    The lane way basement store usually have budget, but quality brand skis, snowboards, boots, clothes, goggles, hats, gloves. They also have name brand winter and hiking boots, with lots of Adidas Terrex shoes/boots, including large sizes. (I saw some Japanese size 33, which is about a size 14 US)
    They had some ABSOLUTE bargains on ski boots there last years and I'll do an update on the gear when they get it in.


    Here are the maps to the ski shop area of Tokyo:




    The two best boot fitting shops are the Fuso ski boot shop ( One of 3 Fuso shops almost all in a row, starting about 20m west of London Sports), and the ICI Race shop. There's also a new one one the corner to the SE of ICI main store
    The Fuso clothes and accessories store usually has a selection of top brand runout jackets and pants just near the front door.

    The cluster of Sakaiya stores northwest of Jimbocho Station, although I haven;t been there for a while:




    A good place to try for some bargains on goggles & gloves is Kandahar. I saw some North Face leather mitts there for about $110 AUD.
    Not marked on my map, but they have 3-4 shops along the street between ICI main store and ICI hiking & climbing store. The stores are located in a row, along the street where the "&" is on my map (starting from about the "g" in "hiking")

    K Village is still running(it's actually another Kandahar store..... it's located about 30-40m west of ICI hiking & climbing store. You can often find good deals on gloves & helmets.

    If you're after goggles, it's worthwhile looking in ICI race, as they have old season goggles there, but not as many as last year (yet).
    ICI Main store had Oakley Airbrake XL there, for 24,000yen.


    Where to look first:
    Have a look in London Sports first. It can be very cheap.
    You can get an additional discount with their card (10-20%), or buy by subscribing to their Line link. (15%)

    Usually, you buy something, and they give you a card, but if you're quick, grab a card from the stack at the cashier, then plan your strategy. It gives you 10% off the already discounted prices. For around every 3000yen you spend, you get a stamp When you have 6 stamps, you can get a one off 20%. So best thing to do is to spend enough to fill 6 stamps in one or more purchases, then make one big purchase with your 20% off.


    In the area near Shibuya/Harajuku:
    Also, if you take a walk down Meiji Dori (street) SE from Harajuku Station about 250m, then take a right down Meiji Dori (main crossing, & main road south between there and Shibuya station), you will see a number of ski/snowboard clothes shops. Go about 500m until the road bends left (as you see the JR railway line), then turn left, then left and double back on the parallel street (Cat Street). There are more shops along there, including a Burton shop.

    Hey if anyone is in the area, could you have a look to see if Sports Crew still have Line Sick Day 104s and 114s...Last time I was there they had the retro topsheet versions at bargain prices.

    Might grab me a pair if they're still around...they're the two skis on the right of pic (preferably in the 179/180 lengths)

    Thanks!

    Hey Sandy,

    I saw your post from last year and was hoping you would be helping out with some info again this year.

    I'm heading to Hakuba for a couple of weeks at the start of Feb and am contemplating a stop off in Tokyo on the way as our plane lands at 7am. I need to pick up a pair of skis, poles and a helmet, maybe some bib pants also before I get to Hakuba and I'm wondering how they go for size over there as I am around 200cm tall.

    I've got my heart set on a pair of Enforcer 100's at 193cm. These seem to be disappearing quickly from shops and I am wondering what my chances of being able to pick up a pair of these is.

    I am hoping to pick up a Smith MIPS Helmet. Haven't seen these discussed at all and I'm also wondering if they ever show up in Tokyo.

    Cheers

    Unlike 4-5 years ago, there's a huge selection of helmets available. Sometimes, it comes down to sizes.
    Skis in a 193cm will be a little rare, but if around, will not go out the door in a hurry.



    I'll be going to the ski shop area more often in the next couple of months so I can keep my eye out.

    Most of the shops in the Tokyo Ski Shop area now have their winter gear downstairs.

    London Sports have a lot of snow gear in their alley store, and will move the rest of the summer gear out soon.
    There are two pairs of Marmot Alpinist Bib pants, which are GORE-TEX Pro Shell 3 layer. Just over 20,000yen. XL size only.

    Ok.
    What length are you after? How old's Poppy, because I got my daughter a snowboard, bindings, boots and bag quite a while back, for about 22,000. She was 16yo at the time and small, but I did see some cheap deals in small snowboards yesterday.

    All of the shops in the ski shop area have their winter gear out. Some gear that was very cheap the previous weekend has gone up slightly (or else the very cheap bargains have already been snapped up, the the jacket I bought a couple of weeks back.
    The "Curry Grand Prix" will be held(as usual) in the area on weekend of 2nd, 3rd & 4th Nov. If around, check out the curry and the stalls for many, many show resorts, with give-aways, and even a few discount coupons.

    The "WinterPlus+" coupon stall will be there in the basement just next to the Sports Paradise entrance.
    I'll be posting more details in the new coupons thread. If any people are around for the Rugby World Cup, it's on the Final weekend, but you can pick up coupons right now. ( @LMB )
    e.g. Better deals:
    - Myoko Akakura Kanko: normal 4800yen, coupon 3000yen
    - Myoko Suginohara: normal 4800yen, coupon 3400yen
    - Naeba/Kagura joint ticket: normal (1 day lifts, 2 persons) 10,400yen, coupon 6800yen
    - Hakuba Happo: normal 5500yen, coupon 4500yen
    - Hakuba 47/Goryu: normal 5500yen, coupon 4000yen
    - Madarao: normal 5000yen, coupon 3200yen
    - Furano: normal 6000yen, coupon 4000yen
    - Sapporo Teine, Rusutsu, Tokachi Sahoro 3 mountain, set of 5 tickets: normal 31,000yen, coupon 23,500yen
    - Hoishino Resort Tomamu: normal 5900yen, coupon 4500yen

    I was at Sports Crew last week and they definitely had the retro 94. I may have seen a 104? Sorry not 100% sure about that. The price was 44,000 JPY without bindings if that helps.

    [​IMG]

    If anyone is interested in the 18-19' Blizzard Black Pearl 78/88 or Salomon XDR 88/84 TI, Vail (Black Pearl only), Aspen and Sports Crew are selling all sizes at about 50% off including bindings. There were other ski deals that looked good too but these 2 stood out to me because I was looking for them and they are heavily discounted despite being basically brand new, esp. the XDRs which only got cosmetic change for 2020.

    Hey @Sandy do you know of more backcountry specific stores in the area there? Or somewhere I might start to look for splitboard specific boots? Do Fuso carry that sort of thing?

    Hi all!

    Beginner Snowboarder and first time poster here

    I'm looking to buy my first set of snowboard in Tokyo this coming Jan. I was just wondering how much on average I should spend for equipment i.e. snowboard, bindings, boots, gloves, goggles etc

    I don't really have a budget per se. I'm not looking for things on the high end. Just want a good first set.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Hi All

    First time poster. Great thread
    Heading to hakuba via Tokyo in mid Jan

    On the hunt for some Australian sized medium (size 32) snowboard pants, preferably insulated ones as I feel the cold , not just shell ones.

    would be very grateful if someone on the ground up there can check next time they are in the shops.

    Don’t need detailed specifics. Just wondering if I can get them there or if I should order online from Aus before going.

    thanks

    jc

    I'd suggest looking for insulated overalls in that case. *if you feel the cold.

    Thanks so much :) x

    How much is it in the UK?
    Are you a beginner or better? Right now, low end boards for women start at 5000yen, and bindings from 5000 yen. Boots from around 8000yen. I didn't look at bags, but probably from 2000-3000yen. So total is from about 20,000yen.
    BUT I'm not sure what will be available by the beginning of December. And also depends on what sort of board you want.

    Hi all, does anyone know if they sell replacement goggle lenses in the Tokyo Kanda area? I'm specifically looking for some Giro lenses but my model is pretty old, it's a Giro Field.
    I totally forgot to keep an eye out during my last trip but I'm starting to think I might as well just get a new pair

    We had difficulty finding Oakley Airbrake lenses last year. Ended up buying new goggles instead.

    Ah thanks for sharing. Even less likely to find a replacement for a lesser known and older model. New goggles it is I guess :cool:

    Hard to tell how long they will last, but the goggles are upstairs in the small store in the main street, as well as some in the laneway basement store.

    Replacement linses is one of the only things I but online! Much better than searching for a physical store who might have them.

    Yep good call on the overalls, I’m just trying to stay within a self imposed budget and bibs can be a bit more $$

    Anyone know the going price for Reputable brand insulated men’s snowboard overalls?

    Thank you in advance

    There is plenty of brands that are legit in Tokyo beyond the "brands"
    I think the choice in Tokyo will be larger. Yet it will take awhile to wade through the plethora of shops.

    Any of the "pre-season" sales will last until the old season gear runs out.
    Te end of season sales often start around late February.
    What are you after?

    Snowboard boots & goggles. I'm heading over to Tokyo again on the 16th of this month. In your experience, do you think there'll still be good stuff?

    I can also fly over this weekend... haha, trying to decide which would be better :)

    Hi Sandy,

    Thanks for the on-going information. Would you happen to know if the helmets sold in Japan are "asian" fit helmets? Which stores would you recommend first checking out for the largest range of helmets and jackets? I'll be coming in for a late session on the 27th of March 2020, I arrive at 8am and was toying with the idea to visit some stores to pick up some new gear rather than buying in OZ online.

    Cheers

    Some are Asian fit helmets, but many are not.
    Check London Sports first, then larger places like Fuso & ICI. London Sports is a disposal store carrying items that are hard to move, so tends to be larger or non Asian fit helmets.

    However, late March is a long way off, so better to see what's available after most locals have stopped buying.

    I did two years in Canada so not a beginner but no pro either hahah! Already have boots and bindings so just looking at a board really. seems cheaper if i just get it there rather than paying an excess baggage fee! Although if availability isn't too good that could be a problem. I am not fussy what I get though as long as its a powder board! :) thanks for your reply. x

    What airline is charging you a excess baggage fee?
    I think you will struggle to find a women's specific powder board for a better price than online from the UK

    What boards and prices are you looking at online in the UK? (and length?)

    I am after some new ski poles. Mine are too long for me. Im 175cm,
    Trying to work out the size, I see to measure from bent elbo/forearm. = 110cm without boots on.
    Is the measure with boots clipped into skis?
    Sorry if this is not the right thread, just thought Id save on starting a new one..
