Osaka has a smaller version of Akihabara called Den Den Town, which is conveniently located right by our hotel. It's not as vibrant as Akiba by any means, but it serves it's purpose, and has some of the same stores that Akiba does, like Gamers and Animate.
Here's a massive photo dump:

People don't give a crap that this is a road for cars. They're all over the road, and cars have to honk to get by.
And that is Den Den Town. We popped into a maid cafe while we were there, but that's another post!
