Nakano Broadway is a shopping mall right outside the Nakano station and at the end of another long covered mall. It is an otaku shopping heaven as it is also the birthplace of Mandarake, the famous chain of second hand anime goods (“second hand” being stuff like “minor box damages” or “opened once”, not “mysterious sticky stuff all over”).
Inside are tons of specialized shops (most of them part of the Mandarake chain), each with various specialties ranging from figures to robot toys to books to dolls, etc. It’s a pretty big otaku gold mine with some decent prices to be found. It was here that I found the secret Satsuki (Vampire Ver) trading figure that I had been missing from Spring’s Tsukihime Trading Figure Collection Part 2 set (still looking for the secret Tohno Shiki) in a random small collectables shop. I think I bought a few more random things, but it was mainly window shopping.
Nothing much interesting this day cause it was just pure (window) shopping for me ; P
Stay tuned for more
Japan Akihabara goodness!
