    Previously on SciFi JAPAN TV, we visited the popular Akihabara district and checked out some of the more popular toy stores. This week we take you to the lesser-known Nakano Broadway, a shopping mall next to Tokyo's Nakano Station that is filled almost entirely with collectors' stores, where you'll find some of the rarest items in Japan!

    Nakano Broadway can be accessed from Nakano Station on the JR Chuo Line Rapid, JR Chuo-Sobu Line, or Tokyo Metro Tozai Line. Take the North Exit from the station and walk straight down the "Sun Mall" shopping street until you reach Nakano Broadway.
