Nippombashi DENDEN Town is one of the largest commercial districts for electronics in Japan alongside Akihabara in Tokyo. It is packed with stores selling electrical and audio equipment, model kits, toys, machinery, computers, and more. Originally an old bed town known as Nagamachi during the Edo era, Nippombashi grew into a lively used booksellers district during the Meiji era. However, after World War II, the appearance of shops selling parts and toys related to do-it-yourself radio kits spurred the area's development into an electronics retail hub. This produced the present-day DENDEN Town. In recent years, maid cafes and cosplayers have begun to appear, just as in Akihabara. Guidance services to stores and restaurants of your choice are available at Japan's general guide points. Why not try them out when you're in Nippombashi? The area is also home to many events.
