  • Loved the vibe and craziness. Found so many cheap but high quality stuff! People were friendly and it was really like moving into organized chaos.  more »
  • the visit of the district is especially true for electronic stores and manga in front of buildings; There are also cafés with canvassing on the sidewalk by the maids

  • It's not my favorite area but it is a must see and even too much time, for fans of the genre but the time will never be enough!
