Take Ome Street from Shinjuku and drive towards Nakano
Tucked within the quaint neighborhood of Nakano northwest of Shinjuku, Nakano Broadway offers four floors of shopping, with the majority of stores tailored to anime fans and hobbyists. Find the rarest plastic figurine collectibles and trinkets alongside equally sought-after manga series and out-of-print books. While Akihabara is renowned for catering to various fandoms, Nakano Broadway offers a similar range of products in a more laidback environment. Most of the hobbyist shops are located on floors two through four, while general shopping on the first floor and a supermarket in the basement cater to everyday shoppers.
The peaceful neighborhood of Nakano, where Nakano Broadway is located, is worth exploring as well. After an afternoon of shopping, consider wandering around the surrounding streets, where you’ll find appetizing izakayas and eateries tucked away in every alley.
