One of central Tokyo's oldest shopping malls, Alpa anchors the Sunshine City complex, which also contains the Sky Circus sixtieth-floor observation deck, the World Import Mart (where Sunshine Aquarium and Planetarium Manten are located), the tiny Ancient Orient Museum, an office tower and a hotel.
In addition to dozens of restaurants and retail shops, the mall also houses J World, a manga-focused theme park, and Namjatown, another theme park which includes a collection of gyoza stands from around Japan called Namja Gyoza Stadium. There's also a Pokemon Mega Store, stocking the largest collection of Pokemon goods in Japan.
This book will introduce you to more than twenty of Japan's favorite specialty foods that are less well known abroad, along with a guide to the best places in Tokyo to try them and expert tips on what to order. From our sister site Bento.com.
