So today i went to check two store in Copenhagen(CPH).

 

The first was i visited today the Stoppel Hobby

 

(www.stoppel.dk).

 

 

The public transport is realy good that area when the stores has located a big green house basement. 10 minutes on foot the nearest bus maybe 15 min to the metro station.

Few words in the goods in the store:

 

Lot of makets(plane,ships, etc.), i see lot of Herpa, preiser vehicle. they have more Roco Minitanks military vehciles, i see few vehicle CPH oriented Buses. They have giving advice if You needed. they have lot of books, and press in the makeing makets. and they have some railway modelling magasines. inside the store they selling lot of building materials and other accessories. 

 

So we arrived in the good part.

 

The second store i visited today is the Tog Center. (www.togcenter.dk)

 

If You arriving the S-Tog(like the german S-bahn system) its about 10~15 minutes on walk. lots of local buses has passing front of the stores. But i think the S-Tog is fastest way if You want to visit more than one store in a day. They have two type of modells, New and second hand. They have both type of huge variety of the all scales 1 to Z. When they bought the second hand modell they checking it (i think maybe servicing a modells). The employees realy helpfull for the customers

 

The Variety of the goods:

 

They have both of the mainlines of the H0 modelling, AC/DC, lot of media in the topic. i mean dvds, magazines, VSHs, books, layouts plans, etc.  Under the G/LGB scale each scale has subsantive show-chase. The second hand modells stored one other room. They have lot of building materials in any scales. they have lot of good stuff in the ww2 lovers in 1/87. Realy good details on that vehicles and they all of that weathered

Just took a look at the map and F Models in Akihabara was not marked. Noticed it was mentioned once in the thread years ago and I can confirm that the store is still there operating on the 6th and 7th floors with a pretty good selection. https://goo.gl/maps/i9LUPXt9wqC2

In relation to other Japanese hobby shops of course. There aren't a lot of good stores like that here in Canada either.

I will have to check them out when I am there in April, looks like they have a good selection of lighting boards and I might be able to score some for my Tomytec Keihan Otsu units.

AKIHABARA MODEL TRAIN SHOP MAP

 

http://maps.google.com/maps/ms?vps=2&ie=UTF8&hl=en&oe=UTF8&msa=0&msid=200049620020407586382.0004bb91a04676391321f

 

Over the years I have done much searching and wondering of the streets of Tokyo and other cities in Japan looking for model train shops with a large selection, and discounted merchandise.  My search revealed that the best location in Japan for selection, quantity, and pricing was Akihabara.  This result was actually suspected from the beginning, but on every trip I have attempted to disprove it without success.  In my opinion there is no better place in Japan and arguably the world for model rail road enthusiast than Akihabara (my opinion) within a 15 minute walk.  In response I created a google map with the location of every model train shop (17) that I have found in Akihabara (search 98% done).  The google map is public and additions/corrections are welcomed.  If you are a model train enthusiast on a short trip to Tokyo, you only need this map to get all of your shopping done in a few hours.  If time permits I would also recommend you visit Nakano Broadway which is on the north side of Nakano Station.  There are 2 second hand model train shops on the 2nd Fl., 1 on the 3rd Fl., and 1 on the 4th Fl.  Just ask anyone outside of Nakano station where Nakano Broadway is and just walk the floors to locate the shops.  They all have an excellent selection of common and rare second hand train sets in mint condition.  The largest selection and best prices will be found in these two locations (Akihabara/Nakano).

 

I have also compiled an excel spread sheet containing detailed information for each of the shops (i.e. name, address, tel, etc.).  I am 95% done and will make it available as soon as I am done.  I need one more trip to Akihabara to verify some information for a couple of the shops.    Hopefully the map and information are a welcomed contribution.

 

Any word on the excel sheet?

 

I realize I'm responding to a five year old post, but figured I'd try anyway.

Tip for everyone Amiami's store in Akihabara is only for figures and no use railway modellers. Yodobashi in Akihabara on the other hand was awesome, they had a fairly decent range of N and HO from Kato, Tomix, Greenmax, Microace as well as bits and pieces from quite a number of suppliers. Best of all they are cheaper than most of the other stores and offer Tax Free for overseas visitors as well as a further 5% discount if you use Visa or a number of other cards.

Great! Thanks! now I need not visit the physical Ami store then...

 

Yodabashi is one of my favorite stores for railway models... they're really big, large selection, low prices, tax free and pleased to know the VISA promotion is still on after 2 years!  :)

Resurrecting a dead thread:

 

I visited quite a few model train stores on my trips, and will add all of them in a google map, with descriptions of the store and classifications. Some stores do not sell N Gauge, these I will add as well, but then in the "does not sell N gauge" class. Mostly Europe at first, and also a bit of Japan.

 

I have never visited the US so can't link any there.

If anyone has suggestions, send a PM or go to the JNS Discord.

4/3/2019: 76 places added in EU, Malaysia, Japan

Actually RG Rokko is the one I have not visited but still included on this map. I plan to visit it this summer however. Maybe I should make a category "not yet visited" or something.

 

Also on my iPad when I click the link, the google maps app opens with my points and the legend in it...
