If you've been to Tokyo's Akihabara district and found yourself lost amongst the flashy lights, overstocked shelves, never-ending UFO machines and tiny aisles where no matter what you do, you always seem to knock half the store over on your way through... then Denden might be the place for you! Don't get me wrong, I absolutely LOVED Akihabara, for all... More

People keep saying this is Osaka's version of Akihabara, but as a girl otaku, I'd say Denden is a good mix of Ikebukuro as well! Here the Animate is often better stocked, and plenty of 2nd hand anime merchandise and games (you never knew you needed). I also found a much bigger doujinshi collection for what I was looking for.

If you've been to Tokyo, you can definitely say that Akihabara is bigger and better, but this place has a charm of its own. The address for the directions is incorrect, but we managed to find the right spot. The directions will lead you to a love hotel district away from the actual site.

We came here after reading about electronics shops, but were disappointed. More anime & toy shops, not technology.

There are lots of toy and manga shops here. Hot items sells fast here. Prices are cheaper compared to Singapore as there is no shipping cost involved. I regretted not buying a toy I saw on my first visit. I went back to the same shop on my second visit and the toy is gone. There is also a McDonald's... More

Akihabara is famous for its concentration of electronic games and anime stores in Tokyo. The Nipponbashi / Den Den town area is similar, but in a smaller scale. If you are not going to Tokyo, you can get still get most of what's available in Akihabara here.

We had several stores we visited here. Super Potato for it's amazing selection of retro game consoles and game cartridges, Super Position for Gashapon (the Kyoto branch closed), and several Gundam model and hobby stores. Lots of interesting shop to check out. Work the quick trip from Kyoto.

Mostly overpriced items. Electronics are pricey. Unless you're a hardcore anime / manga enthusiast, avoid this area.
