Denden town is more for people who likes Anime! Not too much of electronics but anime! Eventhou my boyfriend and I wasn't a anime fan! Still we had a fun time walking around Denden Town! Especially seeing people playing with those crane machines!

Great place to go for us Otakus for all the anime related stuff.... found lots of Gunpla model shops around... some are pretty expensive, but you can find good bargains here. Also noted plenty of AV shops here which can be a laugh to have a look at the collection. However, be careful on some of the more "hentai" collection... More

One thing that I have enjoyed going around this area were the capsule stations.... One must have a lot of 100 Yen coins to get the cool treats that awaits in every capsule :) There is a lot of these around the streets and almost in every store. If you are a Anime fan or a collector, this is the... More

Upon reading, Denden Town is known for electronics but when I was there, it was more of an Anime place. As a female, I found it very boring. Electronics? Well as a tourists, it might be a bit difficult to buy electronics from Japan bec the signs and manual are written in Japanese :( I wanted to purchase a top-line... More

I only rode a bike through the area on my way to Namba area, its a long strip filled with many hobby shops. If you are into these sort of hobbies (Manga, cosplay, toys, games) then this is your heaven.

Akihabara of Osaka. Such a hobby thing, including to figure model, trading card game, console game, and etc. This location also establishes as the electricity market similar to Akihabara in Tokyo.

If you're headed to Shinsaibashi, you can explore Denden town and see and enjoy the old-time atmosphere and window shop for all the gadgets, little gewgaws, tools etc -- some of them available only in Japan.

Sadly Den Den Town is not what it used to be. The main street is still lined with electrical stores, but not the discount electrical area it used to be. Back when times were good, everyone came from all over the area to buy their electrical good here. It was so lively and bargains to be had. These days there... More

Instead of electronics (Den Den), there were lots of small multi-storied shops selling anime, hobby crafts, books, comics, cosplay etc. (Joshin, Super Kids Land, K-books, Super Potato). However, there was a very 'tired' feel to the place. Business seems to have been drawn away by Yodabashi and BIC Camera. Denden Town has definitely seen better times.
