Is it cheaper to buy TY in Japan?

Anyone here might know the answer?

After all, most stores get their supplies from Japan, so surely w/o the shipping, it should be cheaper in Japan?

Any suggestions as to what the prices are and where one may purchase in Osaka, Kyoto or Tokyo?

What about That’s DVD pricing?

TY made 1-16x DVD+R is 1237Yen or 10.41US$ for a 10 pack in jewelcase.
At normal stores MIJ DVD+Rs are not available in spindles over here (1 online shop carries 100pcs Bulk TY DVD+R 8x@8400Yen or 70.67US$ and 50pcs spindle for 4305YEN or 36.24US$).
8x DVD-R:
50pcs spindle TY OEM (FUJI/TDK) 2588Yen or 21.78US$
200pcs TY OEM 10299Yen or 86.69US$
50pcs TY original Thats 2893Yen or 24.33US$
16x DVD-R:
TY THATS Brand 50pcs spindle 3428Yen or 28.83US$
Best Place to buy is Tokyo-Akihabara or Osaka(also Kyoto)-Nipponbashi .
Hope that this answers your question.
If you are in the US RIMA and others will have better deals than most discounters in Japan (I always ask my friend living in the US to bring me TYs from RIMA etc whenever he comes back to Japan).

Thanks for the info.

The TY made 1-16x DVD+R 10pcs for ~US$10. Is it by THATS brand?

As for the “50pcs TY original Thats for US$24”, is that +R or -R and what is the speed rating?

Are the prices quoted regular prices or during sales?

DVD+R is THATS Brand and all others are DVD-R.
"As for the “50pcs TY original Thats for US$24”, is that +R or -R and what is the speed rating? "
These are 8xDVD-Rs.
Prices are taken from discount stores during sales. But these discounters always have a sale going on TY Thats or TY OEM DVD-/+Rs.
