Nakano Broadway is the domain of strange and unusual retailers, but this bathroom-sized shop selling ‘variety goods’ stands out even there. Most of the stuff available here might look like junk to us boring adults, but Japan’s subculture-loving teenage girls find plenty of value in the kitschy, surrealistic selection. We recommend the cat-themed T-shirts.
