Most of Neon Genesis Evangelion fans may already know about this place but I feel I had to include it in our Otaku Tokyo Guide. The Evangelion Store is situated in Tokyo fashion district Harajuku and offers on two different levels everything a true EVA fan need to live a fulfilled life.
From chopsticks to T-shirts and model kits, mugs, books and figures, the EVA Store also have a lot of exclusive items (understand it is IMPOSSIBLE to get them anywhere else). It is a bit weird to see fashion brands and recognized artists collaborates with what was considerated as the ultimate otaku masterpiece a few years ago but it seems that this era is completely over and Evangelion has now become a mainstream (should i say fashionable?) franchise.
And so, almost every item sold there is quite expensive.
Anyway, I just let you feel the atmosphere of the place with a few pictures (most of them are taken from the official website because, as many stores in Japan, it is forbidden to take photographs inside the shop) :
