When i need to buy cheap and good electronics i am coming here like in tokyo Akiabara! Very uneasy to find what do you want to buy because they are too many items! Makes us difficult to choose! So i spent two hours or more!

Like Tokyo's Akihabara, this is Osaka's area for anime, manga, figurines, etc. Nice area to walk around with many shops very close to each other. If you are into such things, definitely check out Denden Town.

Personally I am not a really big fan of anime (I do watch some but not obsessed over it) nor do I collect toys/figures. However I can see how Den Den Town would be a paradise for this demographic of people. If you love anime/toy/figures...More

It's near Namba station, so you can just walk south to it. the stretch of road has all the shops you want to find at Akihabara, such as Kotobukiya or Cospa. But these shops may not have as much goods to sell as in Tokyo....More

Quite small compared to Tokyo. Not that extensive or bright. But it did have some great stores for cheap figurines.

It kind of has a seedy atmosphere but it is very safe. It is fun to walk up and down the street, listen to the noisy shop vendors beckoning you in. you can pick up a bargain and haggling is OK.

If you are into anime and gaming, this is the place to go. Gacha machines, manga comics and gaming hubs fill the streets and every corner. If you are into computers, don't forget to go to Softmap PC store. :)
