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.

I’ve been to Akihabara in Tokyo and from what I read on guidebooks, they say this is the equivalent in Osaka. My view is that the guide may have been slightly outdated, and that this place is so much more Otaku and hardcore than Akihabara. As compared to Akihabara, the shops here openly sell hentai products and other adult contents... More

This is a marmite, either you love it or hate it, it is all they say it is plus selling tools, who would have expected that. We also had a very tasty red been ice cream, recommended both Denden and the ice cream.

When planning my holiday to Japan I choose the city of Osaka for several reasons, an important one is Denden Town. I love Akihabara in Tokyo, so I was very curious about its counterpart in Osaka. Both feature electronics stores, manga stores, more electronic shops, J-Pop stores, some computer stops, maid cafes and of course some electronics discounters. In square... More
