Nakano Broadway (中野ブロードウェイ) is a shopping centre in Nakano, Tōkyō, with three basement levels and ten above-ground levels. Opened in 1966 as a luxury shopping complex, it has turned into a popular destination for otaku products (hobbyists and enthusiasts, particularly those of anime and manga). Nakano is also a sacred place for the watch trade, and the shopping centre has several specialised shops. While the ground floor and basement look like any other mall, with clothing, electronics and food shops, the three upper floors are almost entirely devoted to the sale of goodies, figurines, magazines, manga and watches. There is also a roof garden.


Address: 5-52 Nakano, Nakano City, Tokyo 164-0001

Opening hours: daily 10:30-20:00.

Access: Nakano Broadway can be reached via Nakano Station by JR Chūō (Rapid) and Chūō-Sōbu lines, and the Tokyo Metro Tōzai Line.
