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.

  • This mall is full of collectables: old toys of all kinds, video games. We found the prices here much lower than in Akihabara or other parts of Tokyo.  more »

  • This shopping arena offers everything from clothes, shoes, gadgets and home appliances to cafes and restaurants. It is located very near to the railway station. Nice place to hangout on a Sunday.
  • The best place to loose all your money ! Hundreds of merchant on 4 different floors... A real maze to be honnest. But keep in mind that the best sales are hidden most of the time so keep visiting all the different places you may have missed in this maze and your wish should be granted. Some of the merchant are even able to talk in English... Not all of them for sure. At the momznt the map is not in English so take a pen, a piece of paper and drawn your own personal map. Looks like a real dungeon crawler where YOU are the hero. Lost in a maze where the final boss is the ultimate object of your desire hidden in a strange and narrow shop located in a place you thought you had already visited but your friend said gandalf famous quote "I have no memory of this place!".. and here it is. The holy Grail.
  • Great spot for anime\manga and food. Has a lot of very vintage stuff too which for me is more cool to look at than buy. Can be super crowded at the base level but the upper floors are reasonable
  • This is a great place to go if you're into anime/manga. It has all sorts of merchandise from older to new properties, as well as some interesting niche stores with things like Japanese movie poster prints and J-pop rarities. I found the upper floors to be a little creepy, as life-like, child-sized dolls are very much not my thing, but it was a fun afternoon nonetheless.
  • Good place for bargains. If your looking for used electronics, toys or hobby related stuff this is the best place. Also convenient as alot of tax free farmacist are located here as well.
