Managed to spend some time preparing more photos from my recent trip to Tokyo Japan and today we take a look at Nakano Broadway.
Nakano Broadway is an place for those who are interested Japanese pop culture – it’s an indoor shopping complex with 3 floors of anime, manga , idol, figure, toys & electronics. You can think of Nakano Broadway as Akihabara but with less eroge, hentai & JAV ^^;
At the ground level of the Nakano Broadway there are also shotengai (rows of shops) selling clothes, shoes, watches, jewellery, snack foods & second-hand goods. The basement level is a marketplace for fresh foods like fruits, vegetables, meat and some seafood.
^Getting to Nakano is easy, just head over to JR Nakano station which is on the Chuo/Sobu lines.
Head over to the West exit at the station, you can find Nakano Broadway at the end of the Nakano Sun Mall shotengai:
This is Nakano Sunmall, a 225 meter long shotengai leading from Nakano Station to Nakano Broadway.
As I mentioned there’s a wide variety of shops here, food joints, cafes, watch dealers, jewelers, pharmacies, game centers, book stores and so on. On the side streets/alleys there are various restaurants and some Japanese style pubs too. This place is quite a shopping experience for foreign visitors!
^Found a store at the ground level of Nakano Broadway that sells lots of Japanese snacks at a very cheap price – I bought a bunch of them ^^
