Nakano Broadway, Nakano

4.0
#15 of 248 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 have a place like this is heard in the story, go to. Train, stamps, foreign coins from Anime geeks all holy places, and feel like. That roof is far from the train station.

  • Great collection of collectible toy shops. The area is a bit of a maze so you may lose your spence of direction, but who cares there is so much to see. Amazing retro collection of toys that you will r...  more »
  • It is a commercial Gallery of 5 floors where you can throw yourself all day watching shops of all kinds, figures, mangas, games... etc. We were about 3 hours to see everything, so above, but whether you are looking for something in particular or if these there out of curiosity can give much of themselves (besides the central hall which gives Nakano Broadway is full of restaurants, if you want to make a break for reca) charging powers). I recommend it to any good geek.

  • 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!

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. 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. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.
