Along with Robot Robot, a shop peddling models and figurines of seemingly every popular character imaginable, you'll find video game stores, trading cards, keychains, and endless other knick-knacks. In the basement, you'll find a grocery market and food stalls, making for a good desitnation after spending hours rifling though the endless collectibles.

    Excellent Gallery and practically indispensable for anyone who enjoys anime and mostly collects action figures. Many interesting shops with good variety of products. Highlighting the Mandarake there concentrates many second-hand stores focused on different types of collectibles-games, cds, mangoes all types of action figures, so much more new and old. You can find very good prices depending on what you look for. Gashapon also no shortage there. In addition, the site covers other areas such as shops, restaurants and cafes. It's worth to spend on ice cream maker Daily Chico, where it is possible to have up to 8 balls in a cone of ice cream-very good. The only problem is actually the distance from the central part of Tokyo of the place. But it's worth without a doubt!

    We visited Nakano Broadway which is a multi level complex with small shops that sell anything from anime, toys, watches, vintage, comics. Prices are decent too. Don't miss going down to the basement l...  more »

    Cool place to stop by and browse the myriad shops. The Nakano station area is pretty good for exploring too. Worth the trip, and a change of pace from Akihabara.

    If you are a second-hand goods kinda citizen, you'll probably find this joint appealing... I'm not but give it 2 stars for the great atmosphere.

    Better than Akihabara if you are looking for manga, anime and videogames.

    Great place for manga, vintage games, robots, dolls and comics. Also some nice food places around and a huge market in the basement.

    Nakano Broadway is a great place to stroll with LOTS of good restaurants, lots of levels with stores, shops, coffee shops, bakeries, you name what you want and you'll find it! And it's covered, so even in the rain it's great! Fun for all ages!

Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi.
