JAPANESE DIRTY UNDERWEAR VENDING MACHINES, OTAKU SHOPPING AT NAKANO BROADWAY. ANIME MANGA STORES TOKYO.
Domo arigato, Mr. Robato! Most people think of Akihabara as Tokyo’s otaku (nerd) district, populated by maid cafes, anime, manga, video games and electronics. But Nakano Broadway, an indoor shopping complex, is possibly more specialized. With bits of naughtiness thrown into the mix.
Want to see photos of Japan’s infamous underwear-vending machines? Keep reading…
Nakano is a five-minute subway ride from Shinjuku Station on the Chuo Express. You know you’re on the right track when you see obsessive fans gathered for an idol’s appearance.
The large Don Quixote store sold pink salamanders as pets. The fuzzy green ball is also an aquatic creature. Ah, symbiosis.
Note that they used a Scottish Fold cat to model this pet cooling mat. I’m itching to see the Dracula musical…
Broadway arcade is lined with small, indie stores that vend vinyl figurines and comic/cartoon memorabilia. My eyes drifted to Sebastian from Black Butler, and the Hide guitar goodies.
Vintage collectibles, such as these robotos.
Do vending machines that sell used panties truly exist in Japan? Indeed, for the low price of 500 yen.
You can also pick up a Tenga “device” and “special” DVD for self-pleasure.
You’ll come across some sketchy material in Nakano.
At the same time, there are cute characters all over.
Have you ever been to Broadway arcade in Nakano? What do you think of the otaku goods and underwear machines?
