Discover the must-see sights of Japan, now with a focus on the anime culture of Tokyo and Osaka on our Otaku Tours! Our Otaku Tours are handcrafted to indulge your anime fandom, where guides show you both the popular and hidden local anime spots in places like Akihabara and Nipponbashi Ota Road. These otaku destinations are combined with popular Japan must-sees, many of which have appeared in anime, and immersive anime culture experiences.

Certain areas and attractions in Tokyo are a must for anime fans to visit, especially the centers of otaku culture at Akihabara and Ikebukuro. Our guides know all the best anime shops in these areas, including Animate, Gamers, K-Books, and Otome Road, as well as a few hidden gems that only locals know. While there, we have planned immersive otaku cultural activities including lunch at a maid cafe and an underground Idol live show, featuring Japanese pop / rock idol-style performances. We see such Tokyo landmarks often included in anime as Shibuya Crossing, Sensoji Temple, Harajuku’s Takeshita District, and Ueno Park (during cherry blossom season). Also, enjoy the imaginative worlds of Studio Ghibli at the Ghibli Museum, shop around Nakano Broadway, and enjoy a Kabukicho and Golden Gai food tour in Shinjuku.

Between Tokyo and Osaka, the tour includes a day and night in beautiful Hakone where, if the weather is good, you will be rewarded with visions of iconic Mount Fuji. We take a cruise of beautiful Lake Ashi and hike the trails around the Owakudani volcanic zone. We stop in Kyoto and Nara to see its most famous historic sites, iconic locations that have definitely appeared in anime, including the thousand red torii gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Golden Pavilion and its glimmering phoenix, the Bamboo Forest of Arashiyama, and the cobblestone streets of Gion's Geisha District. Taste delicious Japanese sake in the Fushimi Sake District, learn about traditional culture during a Green Tea Ceremony, try out replica weapons and armor of Samurai and Ninja at a local museum, and browse local Kyoto wares while walking Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka. We also spend half a day in Nara, where you will see the Great Buddha of Todai-ji Temple and mingle with wild Sika deer at Nara Park.

Osaka’s anime scene has become almost as popular as Tokyo’s, and our guides bring you to the very best otaku stores in the Umeda District and Nipponbashi Ota Road. Osaka is also known for its takoyaki and other street foods, which we sample on a street food tour of the colorful Dotonbori district.

Our Japan Otaku Tours are a perfect itinerary for anime- loving travelers who want to visit the top must-see landmarks of Japan, with a special focus on the anime shopping districts of Tokyo and Osaka. These tours are ideal for planning a pre or post stay to visit Tokyo Disneyland, Universal Studios Japan, or other nearby attractions. Let AJT help you book your pre and post- stay hotels! Transportation for our Otaku Tours uses a combination of Japan’s timely and clean public transit system, with some days spent on one of our comfortable and convenient private coach buses. Hotel accommodations are included, with meals as listed on the itinerary, and the assistance of our friendly, professional English-speaking guides. Please browse our detailed itineraries for more information.
