Nipponbashi Denden Town (日本橋でんでんタウン)

 0666440260  Osaka Osakashi Naniwa-ku Nippombashi 3

Sprawling from 3 to 5-chome in Nipponbashi, Naniwa Ward, Osaka City, Denden Town is one of Japan’s most famous “Electric Towns.” After the end of World War II, a succession of electronics stores opened up shop here, turning the area into a center for electronics and nerd culture. Today, many of the shops sell dojinshi (self-published zines), cosplay (costume) items, and action figures, and a portion of the neighborhood has affectionately come to be called the “Otaku (Nerd) Road.” As more and more shops start offering duty free shopping, the number of international tourists coming here has also been increasing.
