We don't have anything like these Tokyo stores in the U.S. I have never been to B&H and Adorama in New York, but although they have lots of stock I have heard it isn't all sitting out for anyone to play with and with no one standing right beside you like here in Tokyo.

Don't know about Adorama but B&H definitely don't have cameras lying around for us to play with. But it's not too bad. They have most things there for us to play with.

Pretty comparable to Henrys (downtown Toronto one) in Canada though I tend to think Henrys to be rather slow in the service department and definitely while B&H is much more efficient.

Still, Yodobashi...is much much nicer experience

There are always many customers in the stores. On other floors they have tons of phones and other things for people to play with too.

well, for other stuff, or electronics in general, I would rather walk around all of Akihabara though that is rather exhausting.
