Tokyo Day 3, Part 2: Nakano Broadway, Mandarake!!

IMG_1065 400x533

Nakano Broadway is where many of the Mandarake stores live. Each Mandarake seems to have somewhat of a specialty such as Gashapon or Die Cast or Action figures or Vintage. Sadly, they don't allow pictures inside which is a bummer because they have some very cool stuff. One could spend 1/2 the day just visiting all the Mandarake's.

What would a visit to Tokyo be without Takoyaki??? Essentially chunks of Octopus cooked in batter into a yummy ball. People were buying this stuff up by the tray full!
