This area tends to be geared towards girls, with shops showcasing their favourite boy anime stars and idols. But is also good for anyone who love anime. It's so fun to explore this area with lots of shops downstairs and upstairs.

Guess more than 80% of visitors in this area are females from teens to adults. If you are Fujoshi or you like Otome games and Handsome boy anime/manga characters, better to visit this area more than Akihabara or Nakano

This Ikebukuro area is like a small bite of Akihabara, except for female geeks. I come here to buy certain kinds of manga, but there are cosplay costume stores and butler cafes in the area as well. There are a couple of rough online maps...More

If you want to search for things related to cosplay costumes and merchandises from all Japanese animes, just go to Otome Road in Ikebukuro near Sunshine City. Various costumes for cosplay were available at several stores. I bought a cosplay costume at Acos.
