One day our guide Yumiko and I took a guy from Singapore around Tokyo.
First we met at JR Kichijoji Station and we walked to Yodobashi Camera to get something.
And then we went to "Okashi no Machioka" to get some snacks for his friends.
They sell Japanese snacks at affordable prices.
He wanted to buy some CDs and DVDs, so I asked him to go to "Book off".
"Book off" is very polular second hand shop selling & buying CDs, Books(including Comics) & DVDs.
He got many Japanese CDs there. There were not new but the condition was not bad at all.
Then we went to Animate Kichijoji. He was addicited to Japanese anime. He was looking for a "One-piece" figures. But unfortunately we couldn't find it there.
("One piece" is a title of a famous Japanese anime series.)
So we decided to got to NAKANO BROADWAY. we got on JR train to go to Nakano Sta.
"Nakano Broadway" is the name of the building.
They sell many kinds of figures, comics, posters, costumes, toys, comics and so on..

(They have French, Chinese & Korean site currently.)
If you are interested in Japanese Anime, I recommend you to go there.
As you know, Akihabara is now very popular among anime fans from all over the world,
but sometimes intricate roads are difficult to understand for tourists.
But Nakano Broadway is easy to access.
Just get off JR Nakano Station and go out the station by the North exit.

Yesterday we took a stroll in YANESEN area.
Noriko and I met with Hsing (a tourist) at the exit of JR Nippori Sta and we began the tour from the station. First we went to Tokugawa's grave at Yanaka Cemetery.
Founded in 1874. Many celebrities including Taikan Yokoyama are here. Also famous for a signt in cherry blossoms' season.
We browsed around in that area such as Yuyake dan dan(a scenic stairs(=dan dan) to see sunset (=Yuyake)), old wall, Hebi michi, Yanaka Ginza (old Japanese style shopping arcade), Sawanoya (Japanese style Inn), and so on...
And then we went to Nezu Shrine.
The old shrine established in 1705 by "Yamato Takeruno Mikoto", a legendary priest. And Tunayoshi Tokugawa, the 5th Shogun, established structures. Otome Inari is also a must to see. ↓
Then we walked to Ueno Park. and we had a lunch. (Thank you for the treat!)
I like this area. If you go there, you can easily time-trip to Edo Era. You must bring back your memories.
