Tokyo Anime Center might be worth a quick look for hard-core anime fans on their way to one of the specialty shops in the neighborhood. Most of the small space here is devoted to selling souvenirs, character merchandise and T-shirts; there are also rows of monitors showing promotional videos for upcoming anime releases, plus a tiny exhibition area displaying rough sketches, costumes and the like.

TAC also runs another souvenir/goods shop downstairs on the second floor of the same building.
