Ota Road

Ota Road is a street in Nippombashi where manga, anime, game shops and maid cafes are concentrated. The name Ota Road comes from the Japanese word otaku which refers to a person deeply interested in a specific topic, which may often be the case with people interested in products and shops found in this area.

In March every year the Nippombashi Festa is held in the area (mainly on the main street Sakaisuji Avenue paralell to Ota Road), where people dress up as their favorite characters and mingle on the street for a few hours.
