Osu Kannon is Nagoya's smaller equivalent of Tokyo's Akihabara and Osaka's DenDen Town - an electronics mecca attracting gaming geeks to its computer stores and maid cafes.
The area is centered around Osu Kannon Temple and consists of a number of covered arcades packed with trendy cafes, restaurants, second-hand stores and ethnic clothes shops. There is a flea-market held in the grounds of Osu Kannon Temple on the 18th & 28th of the month.
Osu Kannon is easily reached from either Kamimaezu Station on the Tsurumai and Meijo subway lines or Osu Kannon Station on the Tsurumai Line.
