Come here, and what anime are popular in Japan will be clear!

animate Kokura Branch
"animate" is a chain store specializing in anime goods, which has expanded to approximately 120 locations inside and outside of Japan. The Kokura location is located near to the JR Kokura Station Shinkansen Exit (North Exit), and its copious floor space was packed full of brand new merchandise!

I liked this anime a lot when I was in high school – finding a towel of it got me excited!

Even if you don't know much about manga or anime, the staff here is very kind and will tell you what's popular in Japan if you ask them! You can definitely find something of a character you like. Of course there are some franchises that aren't very well known outside of Japan, but there were a lot of anime represented that any American fan would know, like "My Hero Academia". There was an entire special corner, filled with merchandise, for "Kimetsu no Yaiba", which is really popular in America now as well!
