Den Den Town (Nipponbashi) Tours

Den Den Town (Nipponbashi)
Flanked by neon-lit signs and store fronts, the narrow streets of Den Den Town (Nipponbashi) cater to shoppers interested in electronics and comics. Multitudes of shops selling anime, manga, video games, action figures, tools, electronic equipment, and even furniture compete for business among Osaka’s young people. The commercial district was once known for second-hand stores. Today, it is often compared to Tokyo’s famous Akihabara Electric Town.

Unlike shopping in the majority of Japan, it is acceptable to negotiate prices in Den Den Town (Nipponbashi). Some of the shops even sell tax- and duty-free items. Some of the more popular, unique stores include Super Potato, which specializes in retro video games, and Gee! Store, the place to find a wide variety of costumes and other clothing. Alongside endless entertainment shopping, Nipponbashi boasts a wide variety of cafes and restaurants.

Practical Info

Nipponbashi is accessible by a one-minute walk from the Ebisucho Station on Osaka’s Sakaisuji Line or a five-minute walk from Nipponbashi Station on the Kintetsu Line.
