Been going to this place for a few days in a long. Whether you are an anime fan or not, you will be attracted by the intriguing figurines and Comics along the hundreds of shops down there. There are quite a few collector's items and the prices are quite worth it as they are difficult to find. Of course, there... More

Fewer store compared to Akiba but there were far less people. Den den town is a more enjoyable outing than its counterpart the hectic Akihabara. You can leisurely stroll on store after store without discomforting feeling due to overcrowd. Definitely a great place for fans of anime/ action figures / model kits who love to compare prices between stores before... More

This area has more shops about hobbies, anime, comics, DVD and other Japanese pop-culture related stuffs and this is also the place I love to visit most in Kansai. This is more like Akihabara in Tokyo but it's smaller. But in Kansai region, this is the most popular area and the best place for Japanese pop-culture lover (like me). If... More

if you're looking for all the anime goodies to buy you'll probably be pretty bummed out with the variety and amount they have here. it's honestly pretty empty, like yeah there were shops but i would say it's a solid 4.8 while akihabara is like a 10.

If you expect too much about this town. You may disappoint with it. There were Animate and other otaku place but town was not such huge. I think if you plan to go otaku tour. Here is your second option below Akihabara

Many shops selling anime stuff however it is not as big as those in Akihabara. However, it is a good place to visit if you are in Osaka. Lots of eateries too.

Nipponbashi Denden Town is the indisputable highlight of our family vacation this December to Osaka for our Tween and teenager. Found what they could and could not find in Singapore. Trial packs, new ones and even pre-loved ones.... Cards, figurines, key chains....Easily accessible by subway....may well come back...Marvellous!
