Hi all
Does anybody know where in Tokyo I can buy Medical supplies such as Crutches etc. I know Hospitals let you rent them but I want to buy my own crutches as i am leaving the Country and I will need them on my journey.
Thanks, Shakiba

Maybe Tokyu Hands...? (Never the cheapest place, though.)

The hospital should also be able to advise on purchase as well as rental. My hospital has the attached medical supplies shop accross the street next to the attached pharmacy. Also you could try posting here in the Wanted section of the Classifieds. A lot of people have a pair of crutches stored away that they might want to let go just to free up space.

Shakiba, I hope you get well soon.

I saw some canes, some with pretty flower designs, at our local Shimachu home center store, but I assume you're looking for crutches.
