Good day fine folks!

Can anyone suggest a good place to buy chambara in New York City? Specific addresses etc. would be great!

Thanks in advance.

*BookOff - a large store of Japanese used books, DVDs, music, etc. DVDs aren't necessarily always so cheap (most go for $20-40), but for chambara - as compared to the latest Japanese box office hits - you might get lucky.

49 W 45th St, New York, NY 10036-4603 (between 5th & 6th Aves)

*Kinokuniya - 1073 Sixth Avenue (near 40th St.)

Wide selection of DVDs, new, but for full Japanese retail price plus extra to account for shipping and whatever.

*Midnight Video - 35 West 43rd Street (b/t 5th & 6th Aves)

Mostly pirated stuff, copies. But perhaps fairly reasonably priced, therefore.

And you can of course Google any of those to find out more about their hours, etc.

I'm sure there are plenty of other places that sell such things too - comicbook stores, for example, not to mention video stores like http://www.mondokims.com/, but I'm not as sure about any of those places as to what specifically they'll have.

Once you get to NY (or if you're there already), you can pick up a copy of Chopsticks magazine, and that might have good listings for more shops to try.

Good luck!!
