I found meds in chemists/drug stores all pretty much the same across Japan.

I agree that prices are not much different. Residents typically become a free member of one or two stores and go there when there is a bargain for members, or when they have enough points from previous purchases. You might notice that some stores are very crowded only on those bargain dates.

Big Camera is not offering bad price range.
Daikoku Drug in Shinjuku, 5 mins from Big Camera in Shinjuku west(Odakyu Haruku store), near Yodobashi Camera head store offers good price range with heaps item.
Daikoku has Chinese speaking staffs and Duty Free shop.

Pretty much everywhere in Japan has not only expensive medicine, but medicine in doses below what you are used to in your own country.

Thanks, the type of medicine and health item I will purchase are all made in Japan for a friend, it's just they are very expensive in my own country, or available on japan only. But so far I'm having a hard to finding them, I just have photos to go by.
