Cosplay Hot spots?

I partake in the art of cosplaying, but we haven't had any luck with seeing too many cosplayers around Akihabara. Anyone know of any hotspots where you can gather and have people come over to take pictures?

    If you are looking for cosplayers I think you should check out the area next to Harajuku station, in front of Meiji Shrine on the weekend. They usually gather around there. Also, you can look up some cosplay event to go, here is a Japanese website that you can search for events. http://www.cosp.jp/event_list.aspx

    I think you can sometimes see cosplay on the approach to Tokyo Dome (Suidobashi).

    Takeshita Dori on a Sunday is usually the best place :)

    Hi Dash, I know it's a bit of a trek, but if you're ever in Nagoya, Tsurumai park on the weekends is always host to groups cosplaying. Nagoya also hosts the World Cosplay Summit in the summer - the parade was a blast to watch!

Second hand Lego in Japan

Hi, does anyone know where you can find second hand Lego in Japan. Ebay and other flea market sites seem to have slim pickings. A friend suggests that most Japanese throw the Lego away because they assume other Japanese won't touch it due to hygiene concerns. Thanks :)
