Wish we had more of such here (local hardware stuff tips) not only for
Tokyo but places such as Osaka, etc. Reminds me of my constant guess
that locals keep the good stuff away from gaijin.

Assuming Tokyo-to, first that came to mind are Akiba's landmark AISAN
and also down the road, some store (I can tell you precisely
after some photo research), in front of Ginza line's Suehirocho
station. You'll easily recognize the multi-floor, extra-cramped
space stocking electronics (parts).

Same deal if not harder. 

Anyways. Please let us know what you find.
