List of Action Figures shops in Tokyo 2010/1/12 02:10
Tokyo 23-ku
Hi all,
I'm an Italian guy and I'll be visiting Tokyo next april.
I'm an action figure fan and collector, and I'd like to ask if you could suggest me a list of the best action-figure and comic shops in the city.
I also heard there are some malls entirely dedicated to video-games and anime action figures, which I'm really looking forward to visiting in order to find some final fantasy/naruto/saint seyia/one piece/street fighter/bleach (etc etc) goodies to add to my collection.
Thank everybody for the much appreciated help!
Ciao!!
Marco

Nakano Broadway Centre 2010/1/15 07:31
Get off the train at Nakano and follow the signs to the Nakano Broadway centre, it's right near the station, across the bus terminal. You walk through a covered mall and then you will reach the shopping centre. There are heaps of shops selling action figures. My husband loves collecting action figures and we spent a day and a half at the Broadway Centre!

There is a book, Tokyo Underground : Toy and Design Culture in Tokyo, which provides good maps to all the major action figure retailers in Tokyo.

The Mandarake store in Shibuya is my favourite.
