Everything Nintendo at Yodobashi Camera, Akihabara

Nintendo is, of course, huge in its home country of Japan. It's easy to see how huge it is in Yodobashi's flagship store in Akihabara, Tokyo's home of gaming, technology and pop-culture. Anything Nintendo you can possibly want is available, from Nintendo's current lineup of consoles and games, to even 3rd party consoles which play their older titles. There's even a huge statue of Mario to steal your eyes away, making sure you know exactly where to go.

Mario Kart is back on Nintendo Switch and it's got its own display, with a little Summer Lesson promotion thrown in. Don't touch the statue.

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks, there's actually another Mario Kart 8 Deluxe display close to the previous one, with rows of Nintendo Switch, Wii U and 3DS games behind it.

Amiibo's aren't in short supply here.

Loads of merchandise on offer too, from game franchise related goods, to even merchandise based on Nintendo's 8-bit famicom.

Traditional board-games and toys are available too, of course cashing in on that Super Mario theme!
