Ascii takes a look at some otaku shops in Hong Kong which seem to be dotted around Nathan Road. More pics below:-

Looks like they missed the figure shops but managed to find a dollshop with a few hard-to-get-hold-of Dollfies and quite a selection of clothes too.

In Japan I would direct you to Nakano Broadway, Akihabara or Ikebukuro for otaku goodies.
In the UK there were a few places around China Town near Leicester Square and at the Japan Center - but that was over 10 years ago.
In Seattle, all we had were a few shops in the International District which sold stuff for more than double the retail price in Japan.

Where would you recommend folks to go for otaku goodies in your neck of the woods?
