5+ Cool Shops of Heroes, Heroines and Machines

Japan, Tokyo Guide (B): 5+ Cool Shops of Heroes, Heroines and Machines

Tokyo Character Street is a collection of official shops of Japanese and foreign characters – Perhaps you remember Part 1 Cute Items and Part 2 Kabuki Shop.Finally this is Part 3, the last post of All About Tokyo Character Street in Tokyo Station series.

Many of popular mangas are on Weekly Shonen Jump, a manga magazine. (Sorry if it’s common sense for you!)

Jump Shop is the official shop of Jump mangas such as One Piece, Naruto, Breach, etc. You might have seen some of these heroes. (Sorry if it’s common sense for you!!)

They sell manga books, official items of those mangas, and Jump magazines. Personally, it’ll be a good memory to get a copy of Weekly Shonen Jump.

Tip 1: Sometimes we can see some signatures of Jump manga artists. I can’t tell when – Just take a chance!

Tip 2: If your favorite manga hero is not a Jump hero, browse the shops of TV stations in Tokyo Character Street. For example, you’ll meet Detective Konan in Nittere-ya (Nihon TV Shop.) ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
