The Momo-Taro web site lists only one store in Tokyo:
Takashimadaira 8-19-15, Itabashi-ku
Phone: 03-3934-4144
Open weekdays 11am-11pm, Weekends 10am-11pm
Open all year including holidays. Located on the north side of Takashimadaira Station.

Three other shops are listed, all in Saitama -- Toda, Kawaguchi and Iwatsuki. The page also says it is affiliated with the FamiCon Shop Momo-Taro in Kinki but the hours, services and concepts are different.

Other places that may sell second hand games (I have not checked these all out yet but I did call a couple of them... all input welcome on this subject):
Book Off many locations The Otsuka branch (03-5976-5211) had a very small selection of Gameboy, maybe 13 pieces, but loads of Playstation games, when I checked today. The Book Off in Harajuku (1-8-8 Jingumae, Shibuya-ku, 03-5775-6818) has a much larger selection of about 8 shelves with maybe 25 pieces per shelf.
Furuhon Ichiba 03-5241-0386 Nerima-ku, Hikarigaoka station on the Yurakucho-sen
Mario 3204-7350 (office) 2-13-2 Takadanobaba, store: 03-3200-7421 new and used software and hardware, open until 22:00, adn (?) 3-1-3 Takadanobaba 03-3368-2122
Seibundo Shoten 5-1-17 Hakusan 03-3813-9438 no Gameboy at the moment
Book 8 1-33-24 Kita Otsuka 03-5394-6017 about 10 pieces of Gameboy software

The most obvious area for this sort of thing is the Jimbocho/Kanda district. But I haven't gotten up the energy to wander around down there yet. Maybe there it might even be possible to find some in English instead of Japanese!

Family Com Shop Momotaro
M-F 11:00 - 23:00
Sa, Su, Ho 10:00 - 23:00
Takashimadaira branch (Mita train line, Takashimadaira station) tel: 03-3934-4144
3-19 Takshimadaira (a couple of blocks from the D2 home improvement store)
Big selection of Nintendo, Gameboy, DVDs, pokemon cards, etc. Also have a fixed price list of what they will pay you for games that you've gotten tired of. This is a chain just like "Book-off" and you can get a member's card and points with each purchase. If you forget your card, they will add the points using your phone number which is an unusual feature.

I found the website for Momotaro at, but I can't read it on my computer. Can someone look and see how many locations they have (are they all over Japan?) and if there are any in Bunkyo-ku, Toshima-ku, or Chuo-ku?
