Ikebukuro (Toshima City) Fun Facts

We’ll be showcasing more great features of Ikebukuro (Toshima City) in our newsletter.

Otome Road
A row of anime shops line the street opposite Sunshine City which is this year’s JCS convention hall. As it constantly crowed with young women, the area has been given the nickname of Otome Road. The area is the source of information for anime and has attracted a succession of anime and game –related contents to Ikebukuro.
