Hardcore Godzilla (and other kaiju) fans have known about buying collectibles in different places in Japan.
One of which is Nakano Broadway in the Nakano section of Tokyo. It is a Japanese form of shopping mall, but it has a specific name.
According to CNN Travel:

Then try some of the most unusual, storied and just plain odd shopping streets -- called shotengai.
To see Nakano Broadway and other shotengai, go here.
