Shop til you drop in the heart of Tokyo with Pokemon, Nintendo, Capcom and more!
Rebuilt in 2019, the Shibuya Parco shopping complex contains a lot more than the luxury stores on the ground floor suggest. With ten floors and an eclectic mix of shops ranging from Gucci to Nintendo, Parco definitely has something for everyone.
The floors are separated by theme, but the coolest is definitely the sixth-floor Cyberspace Shibuya which is dedicated to games, manga, and otaku culture. This is where you’ll find Japan’s first and only shops dedicated entirely to Nintendo and Capcom. If that isn’t enough, there’s the Shibuya Pokémon Centre, a Shonen Jump shop and eSports cafe too.
Inspired by the winding alleyways located all over Tokyo, the “Chaos Kitchen” on the basement floor is not your typical department store food court. Highlights are a very rare vegan izakaya (Japanese pub), an outpost of Shinjuku Ni-chome’s LGBT bar Campy and another pub where you can eat a cicada parfait. Yes, a cicada parfait. We weren’t feeling brave enough to try it on our visit, we’ll leave that up to you.
The rest of the floors are filled with even more stores, art galleries, a cinema, and a rooftop terrace with aerial views of the city. You can even find the neon letters that made up the old Parco sign. In short, this place rules.
