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Forget electronics and furnitures, that's an outdated description for denden town.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

I was randomly exploring Nipponbashi expecting nothing, but I was glad I found more things to shop about. There's a little bit of here and there all over the place, from games to anime. There's the renowned Super Potato shop, Animate building and many others I may have missed. You may call Denden town Osaka's Akihabara. It was worth the... More

A mishmash of all things Japan- comic books (manga) stores, trading card stores, and costume play stores (wigs, etc) among other things.

I went here by accident and I just love here. It's close to shinsaibashi but i think it has more fun than shinsaibashi. It has lots of anime shops and I can find figures with cheap price. Also the famous Kuromo market is nearby where you can have cheap but nice sushi and sashimi.

We were staying around the area and hence, decided to drop by for a walk around the area. Lots of electronics and anime-related items sold, if you are into that sort of thing. Prices aren't the cheapest in Japan but there is definitely variety. My friend did not manage to get everything on her to-purchase list but there were other... More
