Nakano Broadway 中野ブロードウェイ

How to Get There

Take Ome Street from Shinjuku and drive towards Nakano

The anime-themed stores of Nakano Broadway are a relaxing alternative to the bustling streets of Akihabara

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.

Don't Miss

  • Taco Che, a DIY specialist store that sells out-of-print works, self-published books, and super niche collectibles
  • Mandarake, massive manga and hobbyist collectibles, from plastic figurines to cosplay outfits

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.
