Bro, nearby shinjuku train station got this victory golf. If i din remember wrongly is 9storey. Selling everythig abt golf. Alternatively, go takashimaya golf section. I think more cartoon head cover selection which only in jap can be found. At takashimaya you can get the tourist coupon which allow you to have additional discount. Might be more expensive but can only be found in jap. For yokohama i din went there before..share with me when u back if u found any pro shop there.

Bro corn do check out ueno at tokyo.. There's a street selling sports product and near the end of the street u will find some golf shops...

Some of the shops r selling used clubs... Be sure to check out the vokey forged wedge which onli found at japan. Many accessories can be found as well..

I also remember some small golf shops along e railway tracks some distance away.. You will find those jap forged baby blades with jap words engraved.. Those r rather ex thou.. But they make those normal iron heads look huge..!!!

So far tat's is all i can recall... Snoop ard there u may have surprises... Happy shopping bro!!!

You can bargain at Victory Golf... I got 25% off the last time but combining a sizeable quantity of items!

There is a chinese girl working on the men's floor... think was level 4... speak to her in chinese and she will go out of her way to get u freebies and discounts!

Victory Golf is good place to visit, with so many level to shop.

They have very nice golf bags specially cater for Japanese market only.

I found those small shops (like 7-11) along Shinjuku east and west street offer much cheaper as they are more flexible in price. The only limitation is that; there is no space to swing the clubs.

Japanese clubs are different from the rest of the market. The price is also sky high compare to non-Japanese clubs. I hope you find a good store in Japan....

they are different cause they are japanese lah.. what else.. hehehe.. Wink

Ueno is in Ameyo kocho it's a street next to Ueno Okachimachi.. (not the main Ueno station).
you can get there either via the yamanote JR line or you can get there via Chikatetsu (Metro subway) Ginza line (exit in Ueno Hirokoji).

Alternatively some area near central also have it, specially along ShinOchanomizu, but yeah you need to walk a bit. There are more guitar shops there and it's near Tokyo university so you can look look and see see better (not golf stick of guitar)... Smile

Cheers,

Different in design and technology from the usa version bro. They look nicer too. Take a look at Taylormade R9 Forged iron japanese version, looks very nice.

Performance wise could be the same bro...
