The DONGURI REPUBLIC IKEBUKURO STORE is located in the Sunshine City shopping mall, away from Ikebukuro Station. In the same area, there are also the Pokémon Center and the MUGIWARA STORE, the official ONE PIECE shop, which are always crowded with anime fans. Due to the large number of Japanese families and foreign tourists visiting on weekends, the congestion rate is very high. And this DONGURI REPUBLIC IKEBUKURO STORE is also a popular store, always bustling with female customers. Since there are many shops within the shopping mall, it's advisable to check the location on the entrance guide board. As it is on a different floor from the Pokémon Center and MUGIWARA STORE, the location may be a bit difficult to find.
