This one is in MongKok, many magic store have closed down in this area but this one managed

Great Shan! I even see an Onosaka' Bicycle built for five knock-off called Laughing King! That's a cool card trick!
Very temptative to buy some of them when you stand face to face before them isn't it? :)

Rob, yes it's very very tempting to buy some tenyo like knockoff!!
They are 10 HKD each around so not even $2 USD each...
But what stopped me is the design. They are very very fragile and very obviously portly copied.
I know by just looking at it if I open the box it would just fall Apart and possibly even the props:(
And the display for those most were heavily scratched and colours were sometimes printed over the line
So after walking past the store for the hundredth time( with the owner giving me the stare)
I decided not to get it!

Tokyo is a dream when it comes to Tenyo! I visited Tokyo earlier this year and basically stalked the nice guy working at Tenyo's corner at Isetan. Bought a lot of stuff from him...and the prices are really good!

Thanks for nice photos :) Makes me wanna go back soon!

Tenyo stuff seems to be sold for so much cheaper in Japan! Magic shops in America seen to charge like two or three times the price!

And it should get even cheaper. When I started buying in Japan a couple of years back it cost me 1.33 dollars per 100 yen. Now it cost only .83 cents per 100 yen. Quite a huge drop. Unfortunately I am not taking advantage of this because I am rarely purchasing Tenyo anymore. There is very little that I want/need for my collection. But that is a good thing. I am very content with what I have.

Hi guys,

some update from my brother who is currently in Tokyo (Akihabara area) today. The Tenyo prices there make us really jealous. Comparing to Shan`s report, seems that there was no big changes in the Japan market at the moment. But still something interesting to see. Enjoy ;)

Vic

Thanks David and Gaz ! Glad you enjoy it. ;)

AND NOW.....something fresh from the oven ! I requested my brother sent me some pics of the Magic Shop in Disneyland Tokyo Japan. He is today in the park and still in the park and he just sent me all pics this morning and I post it here. That`s why it`s still fresh from the oven :). Looking at the T series product range, it is quite similar with what we can find in the town but more Disney Tenyos we can find here.

Enjoy the sightseeing guys ! ;) More pics will come next.

Cheers,
Vic

One more thing. Maybe some of you are interested to know how big is the price difference if we buy Tenyo at Department Store in Tokyo Town comparing Tenyo at Disneyland. I took one sample for the Dice Tower and it is approx. 20% more expensive if we buy at Disneyland. Well...fair enough.
