The area is also the main spot for the otaku subculture, there is a large number of stores that cater for these costumers, Manga (Japanese comics) shops, French maid dressed waitress cafés(above, café staff distributing flyers), Anime, and figures.
The area is experiencing a expanded renovation, the station building is now closed and access to the station by the chuo street area is reduced.
