FAQ

  • Which pro labs are the best?

In Tokyo, Horiuchi Color and Pro Lab Create (which uses Fuji Film materials) are among the most patronized professional labs, especially in Tokyo. They have branches in other Japanese cities.

Anybody can use these pro labs, not only pro photographers. Processing time for color transparency film is usually about 2 hours. If you want your film or print to be processed to exact specifications, use a pro lab. Most of these labs also offer digital imaging services.

  • What about other pro labs besides those listed in PhotoLabs?

Of course there are more pro labs than you see in the PhotoLabs listings.

The September issue of Commercial Photo magazine (published by Genkosha) has a pro lab supplement which lists the major pro labs across Japan.


  • How do I communicate in Japanese at a pro lab or photofinisher?

See PhotoJapanese and PhotoWords. It teaches basic phrases and vocabulary that will come in handy when you deal with the lab or photofinisher. They include print sizes (5 x 7, 8 x 10, etc.).
