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!

    A friend of mine has been having a lot of luck in Osaka! I know it's a ways away.. Recently she went to nipponbashi street festival. It was pretty cool!

What's your recommendation for the best (cheap) restaurant in Osaka?

I have family visiting Osaka and I'm in charge of choosing the eating establishments... I'm not necessarily looking for Osaka-specialty foods (kushikatsu, okonomiyaki, takoyaki, etc.) Just some typical Japanese shokudo-style restaurants that really stand out in your mind. Also, I don't eat red meat so no tonkatsu / yakiniku / etc. please! And preferably near the city center (Osaka/Umeda station or Namba)! Thank you :)

Eating Clean

Are there any dedicated plant-based eatery in and around the Fuchu/Chofu area? Not an establishment that 'also serves' but one that is exclusively plant-based. Found a lovely one in Hachioji but too far away for regular patronage.
