Not exactly like Shutterbug, but two magazines called Asahi Camera and Nihon Camera have used lists of many shops. Unlike many of ads in the Shutterbug, their rating of condition is vague. If you look for LF cameras and lenses, there are several good shops in the Ginza area. As far as I know many of used shops in the Shinjuku district lean to small cameras like Lieca. The LF is not popular here in Japan.
