Nipponbashi Denden Town, Osaka

2.8
#4 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Osaka
Explore the bustling streets and find all manner of things to buy and do in Nipponbashi Denden Town, a thriving commercial district known for its electronics and anime stores. Originally the place to head to for furniture and antiques, the district now specializes in otaku-related interests, catering to the tastes of mega fans, gamers, and computer whizzes. Browse the large range of manga available in the department stores, and watch the locals at work and play at one of the cosplay cafes. The district represents one of the few places in the region where haggling has become commonplace, so make sure to test your skills and secure the best possible deal.

Where to stay in Osaka

The majority of Osaka's moderate and expensive accommodations concentrate in the districts of Umeda, Kyobashi, Namba, and Shin-Osaka. Base your stay in or near Minami neighborhood for proximity to a wide selection of shopping and dining options. For quick access to long-distance transportation to other cities and areas, look for hotels in Kita district. Many backpackers prefer the budget options in the Tennoji area, where the quality of rooms and prices vary wildly--call or check websites of specific establishments before you make reservations.
