Hey Alfred, where can I find merchandise of Bleach, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, My Hero Academia, etc?
That’s one of questions that almost everyone asks me before coming to Japan.
Today, I’ll answer you that question.
I think you’ve probably heard of Shueisha, the owner of Shonen Jump & V Jump magazine.
Both are the biggest weekly manga magazines in Japan, famous for serializing countless hit manga over the decades.
Well, those magazines have their own store all over Japan!!!!!
Whether its their latest manga like Dr. Stone, Black Clover and Demon Slayer (Kimetsu No Yaiba), or the long running classics like One Piece and Dragon Ball, you’ll find them at Jump Shop!
Jump Shop is a great place to find stuff from series new and old. Here’s what to expect:
- Can badges and pins
- T-shirts (They have some pretty neat ones)
- Shonen Jump manga
- and more!
And of course you can buy here the Shonen Jump and V Jump Magazine!
While you might not be hauling back any crazy expensive spoils from Jump Shop, it’s definitely great for picking up stuff from multiple series.
Like Animate (another famous anime store in Japan), Jump Shop focuses on smaller items you can pick up relatively cheap, instead of huge figures or high end collectors stuff. It seems to operate on the idea of selling things both kids and adults can buy.
You can find stuffs for only 200 yen (2 USD)!
Now, hold on, before it seems like I’m selling Jump Shop short on having the weird awesome stuff you want from going to Shonen Jump’s own store, don’t worry, they have plenty of curve balls.
- Manga manuscript prints
- Coin presses
- Life sized devil fruits
- Character costumes (Not full cosplay, more like iconic parts of their outfit)
- Stuff from the Jojo museum exhibition
- Freiza trash can
Best part is, they’re all actually affordable! This is pretty different from something like Evangelion Store where half the store is $100+ limited run street fashion and other high end oddities.
Back to costumes, you might be wondering, can I buy the jerseys from Haikyu? Yes you can!
And even goods from World Trigger!
The store is decorated with Jump iconography, even having signatures and drawings from famous manga artists!
Like I mentioned a bit earlier, they sell Jump manga, in both tankobon volumes and in weekly phone book style. Funnily enough, their manga selection really could be a bit bigger.
Last time I went to Jump Store I bought a desk mat of Kaiba from Yu Gi Oh 😀
The best place for Jump fans in Japan, nothing beats going to a store dedicated just to it.
It might not have the most varied or biggest stock of stuff, but what they have is really good, especially their costumes and life size items that you can only find here. The exclusives definitely make the visit worthwhile!
Not to mention they have stores all over Japan, so no excuses for not going!
Come and see Shonen Jump’s history all packed into one store, it’s some great stuff.
Note: JUMP Store doesn’t usually sell anime figures. But, you can always go to Akihabara or Nipponbashi.

As I mentioned before, they have 4 stores in Tokyo.
