I am going to Tokyo at the end of Dec, Probably Shinjuku, Shibuya, Harajuku and Ikebukuro.
 
Would any one be so kind to suggest any locations that 
I can find and buy discounted Head Fi goods?
 
I only know Fujiya Avic, Yodabashi, Bic Camera.....Any more?
 
Cheers!

You will want to go the largest Yodabashi in Akihabara and for second hand definitely e-earphone also in Akihabara, it's annoyingly hard to find though, very small sign and its on about the 5th floor, so you need to take the elevator. Lots of great first hand stuff there as well.

Definitely e-earphone, though there are good listening booths in the headphone section at Yodobashi Camera, e-earphone has just about everything new or second-hand, including amps, DACs and accessories.
 
If you look around the Tokyo meet threads you'll see pictures of us standing in the entrance of the building where e-earphone is, which might help.

Probably I need to add "Akihabara's Yodabashi and e-earphone...
[Hard to find is not a problem, Coz I got "Google Map" and Jibbigo App on my phone as my translator]
 
Last time, I just browsed around the Yodabashi in Shinjuku and Osaka, also Bic Camera....
 
I have been to Akihabara... but didn't bother to go up more stairs coz...I got distracted by Manga stuff..
 
 
Previously, mostly on sightseeing, and vintage toys hunting, this time will be "Head Fi Stuff" hunting, 
Hope that there will be Year End / New Year Discount in Japan.
 
  
 
   
 

 
 
Btw, just checked e-earphone got franchise in Osaka.
(damn....last time didn't go also....always focused to go 恵美須町 通天閣.... )
