“Hey Alfred, where can I find merchandise of Bleach, Katekyo Hitman Reborn, My Hero Academia, etc?”


That’s one of the many questions most people ask me before coming to Japan.


Well now, I’ll answer that very question in this article.


Keep on reading!


What is the Jump Shop?


By now, if you’re an avid anime/manga fan, 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 last decades.


Well, those magazines have their own store all over Japan!!!!!



Whether it’s 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 all at Jump Shop!



Jump Shop is a great place to find stuff from all kinds of anime series, new and old. Here’s what you can expect:


  • Keychains
  • Can badges and pins
  • Plushies
  • T-shirts (They have some pretty neat ones)
  • Mugs
  • Shonen Jump manga
  • and many more!





And, of course, you can also buy Shueisha’s popular Shonen Jump and V Jump Magazine! They sell them in both tankobon volumes and in weekly phone book style. Funnily enough, their manga selection really could be a bit bigger.



While you might not be hauling back any crazy expensive spoils from Jump Shop, it’s definitely a great for finding cool merch 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, before it seems like I’m selling Jump Shop short on having weird and awesome stuff you want from going to Shonen Jump‘s own store, don’t worry, they have plenty of curve balls. They also carry unique items like this:


  • 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




And the best part is that they’re all actually affordable! This is pretty different from something like the Evangelion Store where half the store is $100+ limited-run street fashion and other high-end oddities.


Now back to costumes. You might be wondering: “Can I buy the jerseys from Haikyu?” Yes, you can!



They also have clothing and goods from World Trigger!



Additionally, the store is decorated with Jump iconography; even having signatures and drawings from famous manga artists!






For me, last time I went to Jump Store, I bought a desk mat of Kaiba from Yu Gi Oh! 😀


My Review


The Jump Shop is simply the best place for Jump fans in Japan. Nothing beats going to a store dedicated just to Jump anime/manga.


Though it might not have the most varied or biggest stock of stuff, what makes up for it is the really awesome and unique merch, 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 for figures and statues.
