If you're interested in otaku (geek) culture, you've probably heard of Akihabara, but how about Tokyo's Nakano Broadway?
If you're on the hunt for true hidden treasure, you must put Nakano Broadway on your list. It's a collector's paradise. With a complex of no less than 25 different Madarake speciality shops, each focusing on a microcosm of pop culture like figures, cosplay, manga and dojinshi (fan art), this is less a shopping mall and more like the nerdiest rabbit warren in the world.
A lot of the shops in Nakano Broadway are second-hand stores, which can mean great bargains. But watch out - you might just find that incredibly rare item you've been hunting for, causing your wallet to instantly go up in flames. Akihabara may be nerd Mecca, but Nakano Broadway is certainly worth a pilgrimage.
