Nakano Broadway | Japan Highlights Travel, for sightseeing around Tokaido

Tokyo Station, Shinagawa Station 

[Nakano Broadway]

Anime, manga, games...It's a cornucopia of subculture!

A popular destination, crammed with enough shops selling anime, manga, games, figures and other subculture goods to earn it the label "Subculture Mecca". From the basement floor to the 4th floor, you'll find around 280 shops selling everything from variety goods to books, to cooking ingredients, to ladies' and men's fashion, and more. And of course, there are places to eat, too. You can physically feel "Cool Japan" here, a fact which also draws large numbers of foreign visitors.
