Most people in Japan are familiar with Tokyo’s Akihabara district and its fame as the center of otaku culture. Few, however, may know about Otome Road in the Ikebukuro area, which caters to a clientele of predominantly female otaku. Just around the corner from Otome Road is Namja Town, a dining amusement park that is collaborating with the game-brand Otomate in hosting Otomate in Namja Town 2014.

This event features special attractions and dishes based on characters of the Otomate games “Amnesia,” “Diabolik Lovers,” “Shinobi, Koi Utsusu,” “Norn9” and “Hakuoki SSL.” There are 16 types of event-specific foods, including — in the Namja Gyoza Stadium section — unusual ham rolls, nut-sauce dumplings on rice and cutesy pink-and-white “school life” dumplings. The Fukubukuro Dessert Yokocho area offers a “sweet assassin” gelato, the aptly coffin-shaped “bloodsucking rose” and more.
