Nipponbashi Denden Town

Osaka's otaku paradise

By Michael Williams    - 1 min read

Whilst Tokyo has Akihabara as its hub for all things geeky, Osaka has Nipponbashi Denden Town. Much like its Eastern cousin, Denden Town is full of retro game shops, arcades, maid cafes and model shops.

Sharing some of the same outlets as Akihabara, such as Super Potato and Sofmap, Denden Town brings its own range of local shops to create a space that all game and anime fans would love to spend a day in.
