Recently, apart from the cosplayers from Kansai, there are also many cosplayers from Kanto and overseas. You can not only see all kinds of cosplayers, such as the popular animated characters, classic nostalgic characters and fans, which is a pleasure to see the cosplay shown of high quality, but also meet the cosplay with Osaka's unique "interesting" style, which is one of the great charms of Nippombashi Street Festa.
The Cosplay Costume Carnival of the Festival consists of maids in Nippombashi Street and hundreds of cosplayers. They parade along the streets in Sakaisuji, which is the best part of this event. And the Cosplayer Parade gathering hundreds of people is the grand finale of this event. It’s really happy to look at all kinds of cosplayers performing and parading!
In addition, various activities are held in the main venue and along the street. Even the tourists who don't like animation can also enjoy a good time in the Festival. Please be sure to enjoy the "non-routine" pleasure in Nippombashi Street Festa，which is leading the trend.
