Nakano Broadway, Nakano
(4/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Traditionally a shopping mall? Arcade? Shopping? It is. Apartment is located on the old celebrities like I lived. At one time is was called Otaku subculture is said now, is a feature of Tokyo, Japan. It is a pioneer in this sense.

  • Contains a grocery store in the basement of Broadway. Fish is a very cheap store. But Broadway's unique atmosphere was decadent. It is best to enjoy the feeling of the underground.

  • Once, only ten minutes away from the station. What's more, multiple shops in one great difficulty because there is no large Mart or Café makes a great caliber, even as good. Very nice place to discard and hence enable price comparison I think also.

  • Nakano Broadway is an awesome shopping center for Otaku. I host a lot of second-hand items(figures, games, cd, posters, cards, etc) shops. A maid cafe, a cosplay café, a game center. For people less interested in otaku stuff, it also has normals shops and a big food market as well as a supermarket.
  • The commercial center of Nakano, full of specialty stores, clothing, games, and more. The basement has a lot of great grocery stores and some amazing soft serve ice cream. Ground floor has a snack store and a wide variety of pachinko, otaku merchandise, and a maid cafe. 2nd floor as a bedding store (pillows, futons, sheets, futon covers, etc.) and other clothing stores.
  • Prices almost as high as Akihabara for video games. Better for people buying figurines. WTF does Mandarake open at 12:00??? That's just dumb. Especially considering they own about half the spaces in Nakano Broadway, it's just a waste.
  • This is the smaller indoor version of Akhiabara. Pretty much exclusively all second hand goods though. Shops are small and plentiful with a few restaurants (even one vegetarian offering) and coffee shops inside. Mandarake also offers duty free so take advantage if you wish.
  • Amazing shopping area just outside tokyo. Anime and toy collectors dream. This is similar to what Akihabara had for toys etc in 90's If you can't find anime or toys you ate looking for in japan here you'll never find it. 20 min by train from shinjuku Totally worth trip. Food area near this place is like real life namja town in ikebukero. Must see if you like shopping or toys etc. Japanese culture or otaku's dream shopping area. Also Famous for some scenes in some games like digimon.
