tokyo toy stores 2004/6/17 14:13
Besides Mandarake, does any know of any good toy/hobby/comic shops in tokyo? I am going to stay around tokyo station.

Akihabara 2004/6/18 06:41
Akihabara is the mecca for anime fans. It's two stops north of Tokyo station on the JR Yamanote Line. The Laox Hobbykan might fit your requirements, and is close to the station.
For toys, try Kiddyland in Harajuku.

All of what Dave said, plus there is a toy store at Ueno, just about underneath the big railway bridge south of Ueno station. It's not on the Ameyoko market side(west side) but the other side of the tracks(east side).

You could also try Asobit in Akihabara and the toy/model shops on the top floor of the building that faces you when you take the left Electric town exit from Akihabara station. Ikebukuro also has some good shops that might fit the bill, like Parco Post Hobby and Animate.

AsobitCity 2004/6/19 07:41
AsobitCity in Akihabara was a good place, but unfortunately it closed down earlier this year.

AsoBit City is *still* open, but down the street in a smaller version and in a much shoddier building.

What about Kiddieland in Harajuku? That's where all the celebs shop when they come to Tokyo!

Laox Asobitcity 2004/6/19 16:55
You're right too... :-)
It is only 2 months since I was last in Akihabara, but I see that there are now *four* Laox stores that have been renamed "Asobitcity" since the original Asobitcity store closed down. They all seem to carry hobby-related and anime-related items to varying degrees, and are all within an easy walk from the station.

Toys R Us 2004/6/21 07:21
There are lots of Toys R Us stores in Japan, but I find Japanese toy stores more interesting.....

Try the bottom floor of the Sunshine 60 building in Ikebukuro, and have a frozen yogurt thing while you're at it.

Try Akihabara for games. 2005/1/7 07:17
just walk down the main street through Akihabara and there should be several dozen game stores. Keep an eye out for the several small used game stores, they're ususally cheaper and most of the time the stuff they sell is new, but just overstocked in other stores

Absolutely the best toy store in Tokyo is Yamashiroya in Ueno. Forget about Toy's R Us. Also great is Kiddy Land in Harajuku.
