I've just finished comparing the Tokyo Skytree to the good old Tokyo Tower (see previous post) and here's some news on this ultra-otaku spot (that I covered in my guide, see p. 8 and p. 111).
Last month the Japan Manga Alliance (comprised of Kadokawa, Kodansha, animate, Shueisha and Shogakukan) opened a new shop in the Tokyo Tower Tourist Information Center.
Called animate JMA Tokyo Tower, the 100-sq.-meter shop stocks some 2,000 anime goods featuring some of Japan's best-loved characters (e.g. Pokemon, Doraemon, Ghibli, etc.).
According to the Nikkei Asian Review each publisher contributed about 100 million yen to the initiative with the purpose of tackling widespread counterfeits overseas.
