    Tokyo Chiyoda-ku Sotokanda 1-8-8 Okashima Building
    A popular shop dedicated to action figures located in Akihabara, the otaku subculture mecca. From videogame and anime to movie characters, the shop carries action figures from a wide array of genres. In addition to action figures, Kotobukiya also sells stuffed animals and plastic models. Many of the shop’s customers are women and international tourists, and Kotobukiya has the lineup to meet the diverse needs of its customers.

    We bought a lot of stuff from here. Good stuff and reasonable prices. Will recommend this to my friends.

    A store specializing in American toys located a five minute walk from Ueno Station's Shinobazu exit. There isn't a toy collector in Tokyo who doesn't know about Red Mercury. The sheer number of toys crowding the store's shelves and showcases is stunning. The abundance of Star Wars and Transformers toys and merchandise, in particular, will amaze you. And as you might expect from a store which has been in business so long, you can find some truly rare items tucked away here and there.

    This toy store is located on Sugamo Jizo-dori Shopping Street, known as the Harajuku for older women. This landmark shop with its red tent facing the street offers nostalgic retro toys for purchase. This store itself would not look out of place in an old film. With remote control cars, dolls and toy trains, there is plenty to find here for both children and adults. There are also more premium items available to root through as well, which are always quite popular with adults looking for something interesting to buy.

Tokyo Areas

around-area-map

The setting of countless iconic movie scenes and the inspiration for songs, poetry, and literature worldwide, Tokyo barely requires an introduction. It's hard for the kaleidoscopic neon lights, wacky pop culture, and some of the world's tallest structures not to instill excitement in any first-time visitor to Tokyo, whether you're in the very center of the hustle and bustle in Shinjuku or Shibuya or looking in from the quieter suburbs.
