Anime Events

City of People


Shibuya actually has several places where otaku (anime and manga fans) can enjoy! However, no matter when you go, it's always incredibly crowded, so if you don't like crowds, I don't recommend it too much (;'∀') But it's a fun place, so if you're okay with crowds, please give it a try! Especially if you like games, you'll enjoy it! There's Capcom Store and Nintendo Store! There are also places like Animate, so anime fans should definitely check it out!

You can check out other events on this event calendar!

Advertising in Shibuya

Shibuya's advertisements may not be directly related to anime shops, but they are worth a look! Different works' advertisements are displayed each time, making it interesting! Although the majority are anime-related, there are also cases where it's different!

Animate


If you come to Shibuya, Animate is also recommended! Just be careful as it gets very crowded on weekends, especially on Sundays when you might end up waiting at the register for about an hour. They mainly sell the latest merchandise from the newest anime!

Tower Record


At Tower Records, anime collaborations are often held! Additionally, in the cafe, they sell limited-time collaboration menus. Be sure to check the official website and, if there's a collaboration with a anime you like, give it a try! It's also worth just stopping by regularly. They also sell anime song CDs and more!

Mandarake

Mandarake is also recommended! It has in Shibuya and primarily sells second hand anime, Kamen Rider, and other subculture goods! In addition, they have manga, light novels, and doujinshi as well! If you're particularly interested in older works, be sure to check it out!

Gamers Harajuku has many anime goods, primarily featuring numerous Love Live! related items! Additionally, they have a Love Live! kitchen car, allowing you to simultaneously enjoy a Love Live! collaboration cafe! Harajuku is within walking distance from Shibuya, so it's highly recommended!

The Nintendo Store is the only one in Tokyo, located in Shibuya! If you're a fan of Nintendo games, it's a must-visit! They have a wide range of goods, and you can also enjoy various character displays with opportunities for photos! It tends to be extremely crowded on weekends, so it's recommended to visit on weekdays (;'∀').

Capcom Store

For those who love Capcom games like Monster Hunter and Street Fighter, this is a place you definitely can't miss! There's a particularly strong presence of Monster Hunter-related content! They even have a life-sized figure of Rathalos (only the face, but it looks cool!).

Pop-up Store

Shibuya Parco hosts anime and game-related pop-up shops and events every month! Each time, check the official website here to see if any of your favorite series are being featured, and make sure to attend the event!

Pokemon Center

Surprisingly, there is also a Pokémon Center in Shibuya! It is likely the newest Pokémon Center in Tokyo, opened in 2019! They showcase Pokémon plush toys, including Mewtwo, and more! Pokémon fans, this is a must-visit destination for you!

Jump Shop

There is also a Jump Shop in Shibuya! If you're a fan of Jump-related works, be sure to visit! Moreover, compared to other stores, there are many places where you can take photos, and the store is filled with life-sized figures and decorations, making it a delightful place to simply enjoy looking around!

Anibirth

At Anibirth (Anime Universe), a wide variety of anime-related goods are predominantly sold! While there is a lot of Precure-related goods, there may be different items depending on the occasion. If you happen to be in Shibuya, it's recommended to drop by and check it out!

Mugiwara Shop

There's also a Straw Hat Store (Mugiwara Shop) in Shibuya! Moreover, the Shibuya Straw Hat Store has numerous life-sized figures, including Shanks and Luffy, making it the most popular store for easily taking photos! It's excellent in every aspect except for being extremely crowded!

Medicos Shop Shibuya

Shibuya Sky

Shibuya Sky might not be directly related to otaku culture, but it's incredibly beautiful, so I highly recommend it! Especially on summer nights, it's very refreshing, making it a great suggestion! Also, if you plan to purchase tickets on-site, they sell out quickly, so upon arrival, consider buying tickets before exploring Shibuya. Alternatively, you can purchase them on the official website!
