One of Tokyo’s better-kept pop-culture secrets lies beneath the feet of every passenger at Tokyo Station! Located in Tokyo Station’s underground shopping area, Tokyo Character Street features shops dedicated to manga and anime goods like JUMP SHOP but as well as pop culture icons like Ultraman and Hello Kitty. Here is the website of Tokyo’s station shop : http://www.benelic.com/english/
The JUMP SHOP is the official store of JUMP’s editions, so in a single store you can find all the official merchandise on your favorite heroes published by this great company. For those who do not know, JUMP manga publisher is more or less known such as Naruto, One Piece, Bleach, Eyeshield 21, D. Grey Man, Dragon Ball etc… there all gathered together, and exploit your wallet and love of men smashing against each other in contests of strength and manliness. That’s at JUMP that Akira Toriyama, made his first success with the cult series Dr Slump.
Moreover, JUMP & Toriyama San agree so well (30 years later, Dragon Ball recipe is still, even in Hollywood!) That Toriyama has created the mascot of the JUMP SHOP, and you can even find some variations of this great mascot on the bag to the store.
Weekly Jump (the magazine that publishes today Naruto, Bleach and One Piece, and where you could read for the first time Dragon Ball in the early 80) had celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2008!
Before even walking into the store, there are lot of panels from Death Note and Bleach, displays, and all other sorts of goodies, tantalizing every facet of boyish enjoyment of manga. Once you enter the store, the awesomeness continues.
All throughout the store are famous panels from various Shonen Jump titles, a One Piece-style ship, and piles and piles of merchandise. On the main floor, each major title has its own section, with a varied set of merchandise to tempt all sorts of fans. In the Bleach section, you can find tea cups, pillows, chips, squad shirts, along with necklaces and soul candies. Eyeshield 21 had football-related items, while Prince of Tennis had plenty of tennis-related items (no tennis balls or rackets, though), but both offering you a chance at buying overpriced jerseys.
It’s no secret that Shonen Jump’s target audience is young. The majority of the store is filled with boys and their mothers or foreign people keen on shonen manga.
You can find Jump’s shop not only in Tokyo station but also in other places than Tokyo, like Yokohama, Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Fukuoka in Japan. Here find below website of Jump’s shop : http://www.shonenjump.com/e/jumpshop/
