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.

  • If find you a manga figure, it is more interesting to go there than elsewhere, possibility to buy 2nd hand figurines there is everything, more than in akihabara

  • I tried coming in Nakano Broadway. There are a lot of items on TV, such as soft ice cream. However, it turns around Plaza store.

  • Like Akihabara used to be 15 years ago Nakano Broadway is the new place for fans of the anime and mange subcultures to shop. Loads of small stores each specialising in different themes you should be able to find something for every taste.
  • 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!
  • Awesome place, comparable to kapali carsi in Istanbul - like an indoor bazaar with many little shops. From electronics over pottery to clothes and Mangas everything you can wish for. Also many little restaurants with good food. One special famous place is the Mandarake Shrine (don't ask, go there and look). There are stores with used things as well - used games, toys and mangas. It's one of the best places I've been to in Tokyo!
  • Nakano Broadway has a lot of interesting stores, and I particularly found the second hand watch stores interesting. There's also several good dining options here.
  • Good place for a stroll in a rainy afternoon. Lots of various shops, from food and clothing on the ground floor to collectibles on the 2nd and 3rd floor. Definitely worth a visit if you are planning to do lots of shopping
