I enjoyed these streets, but I like electronics, games and I am intrigued by the anime culture of which I have no clue. Nonetheless it is fascinating going into these stores and seeing all the people getting excited over the amazing range of anime products. It is mainly young people, male and female. The is where the geek hangs out,... More

Can pay a visit if you are a fan of electronics stuffs, comics, anime, adult videos, toys etc. However, please do not go too early, some shops start business from 11am. You will find it small if you went to Akibahara in Tokyo before. Easily reach by subway.

I have been to Osaka a number of times, and always make the journey down from Namba to Denden town. The street is littered with tons of little (and some not-so-little) electronics and hobby shops specializing in all sorts of joys for the techie or anime lover. Definitely worth the trip!

Loved going there.... Cool little shops. Only problem is you don't have enough arms to carry everything. Even places to stop and eat. Could easily spend a day down there!

Forget electronics and furnitures, that's an outdated description for denden town. Electronics has shifted to Yodobashi Umeda and the furniture scene has died down a lot. Well they do still cater for very specific non mainstream electronics and parts but thats mainly for the locals DIY. The only 2 things you'll find abountiful here are adult video shops and hobbyists... More

We were staying in this neighborhood, hence no excuse not to go. Most shops open at 10 am and close at 8 pm. Lots of anime and manga (and some adult) stuffs. My kids (and spouse) love Joshin Super Kids Land, a building with each floor cater to different types of toys. Those who love Gundam and Tamiya race cars... More

Very similar to Akihabara, Tokyo. Lots of shops selling anime, manga, video games, merchandise, clothes and figurines. Not as visually impressive as Akihabara, but worth a look if you're staying in Osaka and you're a fan of Japanese popular culture. It has a good selection of stores and arcades. There are also a lot of markets around the area to... More

The whole street stretches very long and it was filled with stores packed to the brim with toys, toys and toys! Its any child's and child-at-heart's dream come true! :) Popular 80's anime toys such as Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, Getta Robot, Voltes V, Combattler V, Gundam, etc. could be found there.
