My Mum is going to Japan (Tokyo) for work and she said while she was there she'd look for a racquet for me: Are there any suggestions as to where she might find some decent racquets and what I should get (currently LM Radical MP)- Im pretty good and consistent and can hit the ball hard and like volleying

Just be forewarned that most tennis stuff costs twice as much in Japan as they do in the U.S. for the same stuff. For example, a Wilson nSix-One Tour retails for about $340 in Japan.

Stuff is expensive in Japan - stick with your Radical MP - it's a decent racquet.

Yeah, tennis stuff is a bit expensive here. As for the Ultra 2 re-release, I haven't seen it in stores, but it has been heavily advertised in magazines. Here are a few stores that you may want to check out.
1. Windsor (in Shibuya) - It's probably one of the larger stores, and they basically have everything.
2. Tennis Support Center (in Senkawa and Kichijoji) - Lots of used rackets. It's where I picked up an old 200G. http://www.tennis-shop.jp/
3. Tennis Paradise - Has a lot of old classics in mint condition. BTW, they are sold out of the Ultra 2 Mid http://www.age.jp/~t-para/test3/index.html

If you like Dunlop rackets, there are a lot of just-for-Japan models, but nothing really special. Bridgestone and Mizuno also are fairly big here. There are some minor cosmetic differences with some of the Wilson rackets, and sometimes, there are differences in the weights, etc.

Why would you want to bring back a bridgestone when you can get a Prince Tour Harrier?!

If you are looking for bridgestone rackets for professional players,
you may want to try Probeam X02.
