Mandarake Shibuya is a huge underground store of used manga, antique toys and other collector's products. It is on the -2 level of the BEAM building in Shibuya, so to get there you need to go down through many stairs, but once there you will find yourself surrounded by large amounts of manga-related collector's products.
Some antique manga from Mitsuteru Yokoyama, a manga drawer who was born in 1935 and who is considered by many as the father of the giant robots genre. His most famous work was Tetsujin 28-gō. Interesting fact, in Kobe -the hometown of Mitsuteru- there is a real size tetsujin .
