Jungle toy store visit

Jungle is one of Osaka's largest toy shops. On its two floors, it covers quite a few popular toy lines, including Transformers, Saint Seiya, Ultraman, Kamen Rider, etc. There are also new and vintage diecast figures, as well as some sofubi, though the indy sofubi selection is a lot smaller than in previous years.

Important note: Jungle WILL ship overseas.

The store is located in Nipponbashi Osaka's equivalent of Akihabara. It's near Astro Zombies and Hiro Gangu.

The indy sofubi is on the second floor. It's also the floor where the shop holds events once in a while.

You can find some interesting indy sofubi here not seen at many other places.

One of the unique things about Jungle is you can find a lot of their stuff on their web store. They even have an English version of the site! Check it out here, and remember that overseas shipping is no problem. Happy hunting! :)

A lot of the stores in that area were awesome and fun. Again, the indie sofubi was less, and some insane prices (but nothing less crazy then YJA or Mandarake) but still fun. I loved Osaka. Didn't know they had a webstore either, thanks for the 411!

Yep the location is right there in the thick of it all. The webstore looks really well done. When I was at the physical store, there was a European guy working there. So hopefully online ordering, e-mailing, etc. is smooth and easy, though I've never tried it.
