Evening all.
I am living in Tokyo and am happy to report that Kinnikuman is doing well in its presence around the city.
I collected, and still have, original MUSCLE figures when i was a kid in the mid 80's.

Kinnikuman stuff is still relatively easy to find in Tokyo with the best shop, Mandrake in Nakano Broadway.
That is where the best of the Kinkeshi can be found.
S.H. Figurarts can be found for decent prices.

Akihabara is another decent place to find stuff, but less kinkeshi.

Then there is the Kin29 store in Ikebukero selling mostly clothing and accessories.

I will upload some photos.

First up the Kin29 shop.

There was a pop up shop in Ikebukero which I didnt really have chance to look at in great detail. Think it has gone now.

Thanks.
A small selection in Hobby Off in Koenji.
I'm not very familiar with all the statues and everything else other than kinkseshi but they do look cool.

This is the Mandrake store in Nakano Broadway.
They have the best selection of Kinkeshi.
They have bagged bundles of approximately 50 figures for 2,500 - 4,000 yen. Most look to lesser characters.
