On the way to the Square Enix Character Goods Shop Showcase. It was a fairly long walk, about 20-30 minutes.
Caught sight of what taxis looked like in this area while waiting to cross the street.
The colorful advertisements on the facade of buildings are definitely eye-catching.
These narrow buildings fascinated me.
After Square Enix, R and I stopped for lunch at a nearby 7-11. This was my cheapest lunch so far, but also one of the tastiest. The cocoa drink was something I quickly became addicted to after first drinking it in Kyoto.
On the way back to the JR Shinjuku station to go to our next stop, Nakano Broadway building (where all the anime/gaming stuff are sold, as R learned from a friend of his).
I wish the whole world would adopt this kind of toilet. It is seriously the best toilet ever, haha.
This little miss was following her mother while diligently pushing her own pram. :)
On the way to the Nakano Broadway building.
As you can see, the sky was rather overcast all throughout. It actually began raining by the time we reached Nakano Broadway, our next stop. Nakano Broadway is a 4-storey shopping mall dedicated to anime, gaming and idol merchandise. Definitely a must-see for fans. 🙂 More on Nakano Broadway here.
Going to Nakano Broadway:
– by train: get off at the Nakano station via JR Chuo Line or JR Sobu Line Local.
– by subway: get off at the Nakano station via Tozai Line.
– Nakano Broadway is a 5-10 minute walk from Nakano station.
