After forty-three years in the photo processing business, Saito Photo Studio in Inagi, Tokyo, will be relocating their business (to their home premise), and cease all film processing services. Below is a very cool, hand-drawn map of their current location on Kawasaki Kaido. Love the Showa feel to the map.
Saito Photo Studio Current Location
The elderly woman who has been running the shop with her husband told me that her shop only receives five to eight rolls of film processing jobs per week; far below what they need to maintain the costs for their processing materials.
Starting from 2013 September 1, they will move locations and focus on digital printing and will only outsource any film jobs that they happen to receive.
