If Akihabara is the definitive destination for otaku boys, the Otome Road, a street in Ikebukuro located nearby Sunshine City, is the definitive otaku destination for girls.

Here are two stores from the Otome Road, Lashinbang, a dōjinshi store (self-published works, mostly manga) and K-BOOKS, an anime related goods store, of course, both with kawaii mascots:
