YELLOW CAMERA: "WHERE TO DEVELOP YOUR FILM" Kyoto Shopping Tip by heywinks

Kyoto Shopping: 80 reviews and 102 photos

This film developing shop is conveniently located on Kawaramachi Street. It`s a yellow colored store (hence the name!) & easy to spot next to the Lipton Tea Room.
Developing film is expensive in Japan. You pay a developing fee PLUS a fee per photo developed.
At Yellow Camera, the developing fee is 598 yen. I usually get 4X6 inch photos developed and the fee per photo here is 12 yen (compared to 35-40 yen at other shops). If you can wait a day and pick it up the next day, you can get a discount and pay only 9 yen per photo. An index print is 130 yen.
The quality is good & I`ve had no problems at this shop.
