Nakano Broadway, Nakano

4.0
#10 of 368 in Shopping in Tokyo
If you're a fan of Japanese anime and manga, you could potentially spend hours at Nakano Broadway. Across four floors, the shopping arcade has numerous branches of Mandarake, a Japanese institution specializing in second manga and anime books, ranging from the cheap to the extremely sought-after and expensive, such as signed copies and prints. 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.

  • I didn’t enjoy Nakano Broadway, because: 1) Many stores were closed (perhaps due to the date being close to the holidays). 2) Many Mandarake stores. All the ones I have visited (including the one in A...  more »
  • Symbol of Nakano-Ku, grandfather, mother, and I loved Broadway. Marui can do it before, because its history is long familiar there is, such as food, clothes and cameras, pachinko and accessories. I believe if you look at the long sandy town of Daisen Itabashi, jujo, or koto, and comparison is not fun.

  • I went there after viewing the comments and sharing by other toy hobbyists. But I turned out to find that there were not only stores selling toys, mangas and hobbies but also selling books, magazines,...  more »

  • They have a wide variety of stores; food, clothes, pets and souvenirs, to name a few. (We only went around the ground floor) The prices range from ¥ - ¥¥¥¥¥, depending on the items you're looking for. The food souvenir/snack store offers very cheap food, compared to supermarkets. They also have 2nd hand clothes stores, probably recommended for tourists who aren't staying too long.
  • Always excellent... Such a huge variety of shops all housed in the same building. Ranging from manga shops to collectible figure shops, jewelry shops, clothing stores and everything in-between. Nakano itself is a hot bed of awesomeness and has amazing restaurants and little izakayas. Get over there whenever you get the chance good for a half day to a days worth of shopping.
  • Seems like the retro game shops from last year have disappeared. Such a shame as it was a really good trip last time. Still good, but reviewing from a retro game collector perspective
  • Perfect places for otaku looking for collectibles. It’s an interesting place to explore though I much prefer the outdoors of Nakano.
  • If you are in to Anime, Manga or J-pop/J-rock you should definitely check this place out. Even if you're not there's other stuff to keep you amused. I usually come here several times whenever I'm in Tokyo.
