    First of all, hopefully I'm in the right thread.

    I will be travelling to to Japan this April and I want to ask the community who lives or been there, where can I buy cheap 3DS(New or Old) or even Nintendo Switch(basically game consoles and stuff). It will be my first time to visit Japan and I will be in Tokyo area only. I've read Akihabara has a lot of gaming stuff but are there any specific stores/Hidden gems/stores that I need to visit?

    Just go to any Japanese mall. They are all massive and filled with electronic goodness. They are known as "DankiyaSon" - My spelling might be off but if your pronounce it, it will sound the same.
