Run by Mr. Masahiro Ohara in Tokyo, Gin-en (“銀塩”/“Silver Salt”) sells top quality photographic equipment sourced in Japan. The Gin-en about page states that each item is inspected by specialist before it is offered for sale. Their inventory looks good- and if you can’t find what you’re after, you can contact them with an equipment source request here.
Gin-en offers free shipping to Asia, with $10 shipping to North America, and has a 14-day no questions asked policy in addition to their 3 month warranty. More shipping and payment details can be found at the bottom of their main page.
While they’ve been a store on eBay since 2013, Gin-en Camera is also on Facebook and Youtube, where you can watch short videos of equipment in their inventory. That’s a real nice bonus for potential customers.
