Films available only in Japan

Hi,

I'm very excited to be going to japan (Tokyo and Kyoto) in a few weeks and would like to pick up some film that I can't really get here in Europe. So far I'm aware of Fuji Superia Natura 1600, which I've heard good things about, and Fuji Superia "Venus" 800, which I'm not sure is any different from standard Superia 800.

Is anyone aware of any other Japan-only films and where is the best place to buy?

I will also be on the lookout for other photographic items that can't easily be bought elsewhere, so feel free to mention any that come to mind.

Many thanks

Superia Premium 400 — easily recognisable by the 27 exposure rolls — Venus 800, and Natura 1600 are the ones that I'm aware of. Though I'm uncertain if they are any different than their North American & European counterparts.

(There's also Fujicolor 100 & 400, aka Fuji "Industrial". Though those are exactly the same as regular Superia.)

Fuji Fortia - ISO50 vibrant Velvia. Fuji Natura is excellent ISO1600 color negative. This may be of interest -> The Complete Tokyo Camera Shopping Guide

Some things I read online seem to indicate that they are all different than their counterparts.

+1 for Natura. Bring me back some would you. It's ridiculously expensive via the 'Bay. Awesome stuff.
