Den Den Town (Nipponbashi) is the go-to place in the Osaka downtown district during March, for its very popular annual Nipponbashi Street Festa–an otaku-matsuri extravaganza.
Den Den Town is known for its electronic shops that are lined with a mix of old school, new school, hip trending fashion, anime, manga, movies and games–reminiscent of what you might see in Akihabara in Tokyo, Japan. The matsuri brings in otakus from all over Japan to bask in its energetic atmosphere filled with live musical performances, parades, art displays, cosplaying, and all things kawaii (cute). Check out this year’s awesome photos!
