About Otome Road
Otome Road - literally Maiden Road - is a major shopping haven for anime, manga, cosplay and otaku culture geared towards women.
Less overtly sexual and frenetic than Akihabara, Otome Road can be thought of as a calmer, more refined introduction to the subculture.
The area features a number of well known stores, including Animate Ikebukuro and K-Books, smaller DVD and book stores, plus cafes including several butler cafes.
Be sure to visit some of the smaller streets off the main road too, as they contain a range of smaller stores.
