Nakano-ku (中野区) is one of the 23 special wards of Tokyo, Japan.

It is the hometown of many famous Japanese, including musician Ryuichi Sakamoto and comedian Yuji Tanaka. It makes up around 3% of Tokyo's 23 wards. The ku has five rivers running through it. It is a youth city, with a relatively high population of people in their twenties. Nakano-ku has always been mainly a residential area, with few big businesses or shopping areas. In recent years, because of its proximity to Shinjuku-ku, Nakano-ku has seen more businesses moving into the area.
