Nakano Broadway

Shopping Mall
As a complex building that opened in 1966, the lower level floors are a shopping center while the upper level floors are condominiums. Known as a holy land for subculture, the space from the second floor to the fourth floor is occupied by many specialist-oriented shops carrying anime, manga, used books and premium toys. From the first basement floor to the ground floor there are a row of shops related to food products, daily necessities, and fashion. The area is frequented by many women and non-Japanese, and is a popular shopping spot regardless of age or nationality.
