The new Official Nintendo store is finally open in Shibuya, Tokyo. Currently, the only other Nintendo store is located in New York and the Shibuya location will be known as Nintendo Tokyo.
The store is located in the new Parco Flagship department store which will have over 20 floors of Shopping, Restaurants, Office and Event spaces, located just north of Shibuya Station where the popular Scramble Crossing and famous Hachiko Statue resides.
Store Opening Update!
The new Parco department just opened on Nov 22, 2019 and the new Nintendo Tokyo store is located on the 6th floor along side a NEW Pokemon Center Shibuya and other gaming and anime themed shops. The entire 6th floor of the Parco building has been dubbed “Cyberspace Shibuya” and will include other shops such as a Capcom Store and Jump Shop. Check out the Parco website to see a listing of all the shops here.

Opening Day, Here we Go!
Today’s opening day was pretty crazy as expected… but luckily crowd management was in full effect. In order to shop at the Nintendo or Pokemon store, you have to get a ticket and wristband and come back to your specified time. We managed to snag a wristband but even then, you will need to come back and wait in line to enter the store, which according to staff, could be another 2 hours!
If you happen to be in Tokyo during the opening weeks and can’t seem to get access, you can still get your Nintendo fix by visiting the other official Nintendo stores such as the Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo in Ikebukuro and the Pokémon Center Tokyo DX in Ginza.
