Den Den Town – Osaka’s version of Akihabara (How to go and what to expect)

Since we came from Kuromon Market before heading to Den Den Town, we had no choice but to walk to Den Den Town, as it was the only option available.

If you’re coming from a different place, you can get to Den Den Town via subway as well!

The closest subway station and exit to Den Den Town : Ebisucho Station, follow signs to North Gate and get out of exit 1-A.

Going back to what I was saying, we came from Kuromon Market, so we had no choice but to walk to Den Den Town.

and this Gundam, then YOU HAVE REACHED DEN DEN TOWN!!

Den Den Town is Osaka’s version of Tokyo’s Akihabara. It’s the perfect place for those who love reading Manga or watching Anime. My dad and I spent around 3 hours here!!

There are stores that sold figurines, mangas, fan-made merchandise, complete cosplay costumes, and also areas for people to have some card battles!

It was my first time to see people actually have card battles. I had so much fun at Den Den Town since I have been a fan of anime since I was young!
