Kaiyodo Hobby Lobby Tokyo Store
Time Out says
Akihabara’s Radio Kaikan building is geek central, with a cacophony of shops offering collectibles, idol apparel and ‘only in Japan’ gadgets. Best of the lot is the official shop of model figure specialist Kaiyodo, whose plastic people are renowned around the world. The store hosts some 60 capsule toy machines with the brand’s original items as well as those made in collaboration with other brands. Keep an eye out for the ‘Souvenir Capsule Figure Series’ (¥400): these are miniature versions of famous landmarks from across Japan, and you usually can’t get them without visiting the location itself.
