The One about the NTV Shop at Shiodome

In Tokyo’s Minato Ward, Shiodome is one of Japan’s most modern and savvy areas.

The area is the headquarters for many of Japan’s major corporations such as All Nippon Airways, Fujitsu, Sega Sammy Holdings, Softbank, to name a few.  But the location is also a hub for concert performances and TV appearances thanks to the location being the headquarters of NTV (Nippon Television).

And right next to the NTV headquarters is NTV’s official merchandise shop.

Once you walk in, you are greeted with a life size statue (or wax figure) of comedian and TV talent Ayako Imoto of “Sekai no hate made itteQ”.

But as you continue, you will see a lot of the NTV popular merchandise for “Death Note”, the mascot Funashi, Anpan Man merch, Star Wars merch, Yomiuri Giants baseball team merchandise, “Meitantei Conan” sketches and autographs, snacks dedicated to various shows, TV drama posters and more.  Here is more what you can see inside the store:

If you happen to be by the area and are looking for unique gifts to get for friends or family, especially if they are fans of Japanese entertainment.  Definitely visit the NTV Shop!
