MEGA Don Quixote




Tonnes of stuff you can't buy easily in Chiba. Like Morgan's spiced rum and other tasty drinks like Jameson and Malibu.
  • Pet shop - Grab yourself a ferret or a puppy or something equally unwise but cute.
Wonder REX




Go to Recycle shops - Wonder REX among many other recycle shops are great places to pick up useful stuff at a much lower price than new. I don't recommend musical instruments though...the guitars are mostly in bad, unplayable condition.

DDR, Project Diva Arcade, JuBeat, 4-player linked racing games and all the usual stuff too (Tekken, street fighter, metal slug etc.). Downstairs is all Prize grabber machines. Prepare to lose a lot of money here.
WonderGOO




If I'm not mistaken there's actually 2 WonderGoo's in Togane. In any case, it's not hard to find.
