Depend on how long you are there for, just a few days better to just focus on apparel and accessories. Whether cheaper anot depends on what you are shopping for...

Based on personal experience, Japan has the widest range of equipment, apparel and accessories in the world with prices which spans from a yen to millions. Generally, JDM products are of higher quality in design and materials. So paying the same or slightly more than what we pay in Singapore is actually quite reasonable. But again key is what you plan on getting and the brands you have in mind, these makes a world of difference in Japan.

Thanks to all the bros above. Please keep it coming.

I will pop in their Outlets and see if they have golf shops. If not, will ask where the golf shops are when I am there.

I do not buy golf stuff much so got to google "crazy" shafts and whatever. Thanks again.

Tip: Without revealing too much (dun wanna risk ruffling any JDM aficionados feathers here) try the domestic brands, especially brands by their JPGA & JLPGA pros. You wouldn't regret! Wink

Bro, spill the beans la.

I'm dying to know which ones you're hinting at.

My wife reads japanese, but has zero interest in golf.

So everything gets lost in translation. Well, except the price.

JDM poisoning is by far the deadliest I have ever encountered.
Recently heard of an experienced player who bought and shipped close to 100kg of JDM steel & titanium forgings, graphite, apparel and accessories back.
How many sets of irons, woods, hybrids and putters were in there? I really don't want to know. I have a clear conscience.

Warning: Don't ever goggle 'jdm golf'

Mizuno clubs are cheaper there. I bought a full set for my wife last month when I was there.

I just came back from Tokyo two weeks ago, almost came back with the new S Yard XV driver (c.$740) and Tourstage X blades.. JDM stuff is nice but still over my budget. Saving up for miura gikens next time...

Head covers like the titleist tour Pom poms, really nice staff bags are avail there

Just went to Victoria golf. And the pricing really good too. The Inpres X V forged much cheaper than I imagined. With Tour AD75 shaft at S$1650, and with the same NSpro shaft mentioned by a bro only $1250 ! Looks tempting
