Wow! It’s a quiet place with amazing little discoveries.. and would you believe a mini Uniqlo! We were looking for manga and we found so many at Nakano Broadway. An old style shopping area and mall with a really cool vibe! I found Takashipom - Takashi Murakami’s art and there is teh cafe in the 2nd floor. Definitely go visit with really great food choices like the Curry and Naan and Chateraise with daifukus and Mont Blancs and so much to choose from. Type into Google maps and you will get some great choices on trains and platforms. I was so impressed and it even tells you which carriage to get on for the quickest change over. Google maps was fantastic in helping me discover little hidden gems in Tokyo ❤️

Must-visit place for Anime, Manga, Toys, Video games and Watch collectors. All these under one roof. It was fun browsing the stores, especially if you are searching for a past gem. The Jack Road and Betty shops have a wide variety of used watches, both vintage and recent models. Although you must do your due diligence as the are not always the best (depending where you are from). Easier to navigate/find items vs. Akihabara, where sometimes you really need to dig deep to find the real gems.

This place is awesome. Its an old complex and building, a bit dated, but still very clean. Went to Nakano primarily to look for great deals on watches. They have it all! From old vintage time pieces, japanese watches, to swiss luxury watches that costs an arm and a leg! This place has it all too! Spent almost the whole day here just looking at watches and comparing prices from one store to the next. There’s honestly nothing quite like it. I have not encountered a similar place like Nakano in Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan or South Korea where watch shops - selling brand new and pre-owned pieces, are just scattered all over an entire floor! The place has an abundance of restaurants and food options too! From snacks to great meals. They even have some pet shops! Some negatives: Nakano is quite far from the usual tourist spots. Although, the place is easily accessible via train. One you reach Nakano Station, take the North Exit and you will see Nakano Broadway. You cant miss it. Another negative is the lack of trash cans/bins. The place is also a bit old and dated, but its part of the appeal.

Basically the Mandarake headquarters as more than half of the stores seem to be owned by Mandarake. Each store has its own theme. One was for scale train models, other for vintage toys, another for BL manga another for Ero Manga... Overall an amazing place to find figures, toys and collectables.

Loved Nakano Broadway! Only a short ride on the Chuo-Sobu line from Shinjuku Station. Multiple shops here to take all of your money! Everything from Ice Cream to Toys! I highly recommend taking a trip out this way if you are staying in lower Tokyo area. Small alleys with supermarket and great food too. Very old school vibes in this area.
