All the facilities are given here It is available in our place too but they are expensive This is Sony vlogging camera ZV-1 It was a flop. You dont get ultra wide in it If you hold it like this and shoot, you only get your face and not the backside visuals Only if you get it like that it would be good My personal choice is to use ultra wide ones for vlogging There are more on the top floor I think it is the last floor. Lets see

Let us try it out They still have CD drives I have bought so many CDs long back How many CDs we used to write. When it fails, we shout at Nero We used to get tensed until the whole writing was over A CD would be a waste. Then we began buying rewritable CDs We used to write MP3 then Those days! Do you remember the days of floppy disk? I remember and I used to use it. We used to use floppy disks to copy and print Pacemaker files I was tired seeing all these and thought of going down. But it isnt over yet I am tired walking and seeing the electronic store Such a huge one. It is as big as the Lulu Mall You find home appliances here I shall show you if there are anything new This is now seen in our place but it is very expensive It is a heater It is a fan and you get hot air from it too I can feel the air from it You get hot air, normal fan and cold air from it You can use it as a room heater It can be used for several purposes.

It is 68000yen here which is 40000 INR This is an LG product You have the same in different brands here I think Dyson is the most popular one here I dont understand what this is I think it is a kind or room freshener or making it aromatic I think it is added to this and makes the room filled in that aroma Everything is written in Japanese language and nothing in English I am not able to understand what product this is Something like a fan Can you understand what this is in one go? You wont understand This is our AC Full of ads stuck on an AC Have you ever seen ACs kept for sale like this? We see lot of ACs kept for sale in shops at our places I had to look at this 2-3 times to understand it is an AC This is the indoor unit of an AC They have written something and all over it as ads This is funny I liked it. To know the flow of an AC, look at the net Have you seen anything like this before? It is done to understand the AC flow All these are AC units They dont have a space to stick any more stickers I first thought it was a lottery store. This is amazing and beyond our thoughts On this side you have refrigerator, washing machine, microwave oven etc Like they have stuck on ACs, they have stuck on fridges too I cannot understand what is stuck on it Some fridges look like an ATM machine.
Something and all over it These are washing machines. They havent stuck that many stickers on it There are chances for them to show a demo here A dress here before and after is shown as display You have small washing machines too You have small to big ones here Have you seen dresses washed and put to dry like this in any shop? I am first time seeing this All the accessories for a washing machine and detergents for it are kept there They have massage chairs too These are European closet seats But the closets here are all electronic You just have to press a switch for water and rest. You just have to be seated and rest are done by the closet That is why you get to see that in an electronic store Otherwise it would have been at a sanitary shops This is an LG styler You find them in hotels here. You can see headings , they have LG styler. It is expensive You can see what is happening in there. A blazer is in process in there. It is showing what the machine can do It steams and get clothes out of it without wrinkles What all technologies. Not only washing. But these should also be used
All around the lift also you have lot of stickers Not yet over. Still more upstairs I am just going up each and every floor Let us go and see what is up there These are gaming machines All I can see is fighting and games on screen There were gaming downstairs and now here upstairs too You have a lot of gaming here I have no idea on what these are Those who know what this is, do comment I know the one on top is gaming. Cant understand what is down They have cycles too You have cycles for all age groups, accessories and many more This is like the one kept in our car seat. You can put the belt and let them ride This is Panasonic's cycle I didnt know they had cycle People in Japan use cycles a lot Though they eat a lot of rice, they walk and ride cycles a lot They do work outs and exercises too. Lot of cycles here These many cycles wont be found at Decathalon too These are game machines People are playing games here. They love playing games This place where I am standing, Akihabara is the land of animae I dont know to say more on this. I dont like playing games
I wasnt fond of playing games from my childhood onwards So I dont know much about it Those who know about it, do comment below I think these are characters of the game Their names are given there and it is for sale. Each character of a game is for sale You have Japanese souvenir toys here I feel like buying something and all for Rishi But I will be traveling to many other countries and only then going home So I am wondering how to buy These are made of Lego All these are Pokemon Lego I have repeatedly said Oh my God many times in this video. Sorry for that It comes out when I am in surprise seeing all these I shall cut as much as I can Japan is the best place for people who like gaming You will have lot of fun You have lots here All these are for sale. I dont know what they are It might be some character. These are attires of some character I think This is a Lego store You have lot of things made of Lego You can see a lot of super heroes here All these are super heroes. I dont know their names Those who do, do comment All these are superhero toys. They cost 532yen
Which is around 300 INR I saw maximum crowd in this area 6000 yen for this which is less than 3500 INR All these are very cheap here. In India, I have seen them expensive It is being animated here. You can see kids looking at it There is one more floor above this Let me go and see. I am feeling hungry Will we get some food here? I am hungry and feel tired The charge of my phone is going to get over I should stop to eat food and charge my phone You have clothes and footwear in this floor I saw there is a food court on top of this. Lets go and see I am going up again You have Japanese food restaurants here I cannot understand what they are. All are written in their language Nothing is written in English We could read and order what we want if it was English Some bullet train displayed here I am using a google translator and trying to figure out what this is I couldnt understand anything from that shop When I came to another shop, it is written in English They have all these here When it is Chinese food, we at least have an idea I cannot understand what these are In Japan, you get free drinking water. You dont have to pay for it
Nobody gives tip to the bearers here So dont go for it. I think they dont like it I think it was the same at China too Even at London, England and UK, tip system was not there When it is given, it is takin in the written form of gratuity. They take it as service tax But tip isn't given. So dont try giving tips. They may not like it This is what I have ordered This is beef Stir fried beef with fried rice They have topped the fried rice with stir fried beef A soup is also served with this I saw something placed turned over. It is the bill 1518yen for these That would be around 1000-1200 INR It is a dining restaurant and so food is expensive Let me try this out. It looks spicy
Awesome. It is spicy But slightly sweet too Beef is also awesome Food was good. My stomach is full See how beautifully they have made these displays Awesome I am showing you these and inspiring you Even the toilets have lot of ads You dont have a place without ads here I walked 5246 steps only in this shop Even the lift is full of ads Dont have to feel bad in not buying anything from this shop I bought a big tripod In Japan, shoplifting is a big crime Dont rob even a 1/- thing from a shop You will be put behind bars for 3-4 months You will have to pay a huge amount to come out. Not only Japan, but in many countries, it is a big crime.
Some have that mental habit in them If you have any such issues, dont come here Dont do it. You will be in trouble
