Join a delightful autumn Otaku Tour with AJT, and immerse yourself in Japan's Anime and Otaku Culture, exploring must- see otaku destinations in Tokyo, Hakone, Nagoya, Kyoto, and Osaka.

Visit the Japan you have only seen in Anime while on the Otaku Tour. This specially themed tour blends the top Japan anime, manga, ninja and food hotspots in Tokyo, Hakone, Nagoya, Iga Ueno, Kyoto, and Osaka. This includes 3 top otaku destinations: Akihabara in Tokyo, Nipponbashi in Osaka, and Osu in Nagoya, where streets are full of quirky shops that let you feed your particular pop culture fandom. This itinerary is just right for otakus looking to enjoy Japan during the cool, colorful autumn season.

Begin in Tokyo, with sightseeing and experiences that belong on any anime fan's bucket list. The first sight is Asakusa Sensoji - Tokyo's oldest temple, appearing in a few animes. Sit in at a "Conveyor Belt Sushi" Restaurant, where plates of delectable sushi glide past your table on a long conveyor belt. Wander around Akihabara - the crown jewel of anime culture, with streets stacked end-to-end with manga and anime shops, retro video game stores, internet cafes, and thriving arcades - with plenty of time for shopping. Take time while there to stop in one of Akihabara's eccentric themed cafes - such as anime cafes with cutesy foods designed like anime characters, or maid cafes where your food is brought to you by an adorable Japanese maid. Explore Ikebukuro, center of Tokyo's Ramen food culture. Try a few tasty bowls of your choice on our special Ramen Tour. We explore Sunshine City, which includes the flagship store of the Animate retail chain - known for their vast collection of anime merchandise. This includes the Pokémon Center Mega Tokyo - your one- stop store for finding all things Pokémon - especially if you love Pikachu. Ikebukuro also contains Otome Road, a street of anime stores, cafes, and cosplay shops aimed at appealing to girls who are fans of anime and manga - especially shoujo manga. Shop the anime stores of Nakano Broadway, and take a food tour of Shinjuku's neon "red-light district" at Kabukicho and Golden Gai. Also while in Tokyo, you'll tour the Outer Market area of the famous Tsukiji Fish Market, browse the fashion-forward boutiques in Harajuku's Takeshita Street and Omotesando, and brave Shibuya's "Scramble Crossing" to visit the statue of Hachiko the dog.

The tour continues to Hakone and its idyllic country landscape. While here, embark on a pirate cruise around Lake Ashi. Hakone also offers a treat for fans of the anime Evangelion, at the Hakone Yumoto Evangelion Shop. The tour continues to Nagoya, where a day of leisure awaits with a choice of optional entertainments for you to choose. You can explore the wondrous delights of the new Ghibli Park (tickets not guaranteed), or you could join our guide on a special anime / foodie tour through Sakae (downtown Nagoya), and the Osu Shopping District. On the way to Kyoto, the tour stops at the Iga-Ueno Ninja Museum - a former ninja house complete with secret passages and hidden rooms, which displays authentic ninja implements and weapons. In Kyoto, take pictures while wearing a colorful and stylish Kimono, and see the ancient capital's UNESCO Heritage sites. These include the former imperial capitals finest landmarks: Fushimi Inari Shrine (including the Fushimi Sake District), the Golden Pavilion, Kiyomizu Temple, the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and the Gion Geisha District. Of especial interest to otakus is Kosanji Temple, home to Japan's oldest manga - the Chouju- jinbutsu-giga.

Finally, in Osaka, a city whose inhabitants are caricatured in many anime, we visit many of its top must-sees: Osaka Castle, Kuromon Market, Dotonbori, and Nipponbashi Den Den Town (the Akihabara of West Japan). Enjoy a Street Food Tour of the Shinsekai District, which is a strange fusion of New York's Coney Island and Paris, France. For most of the tour, you will be transported around Japan on one of our comfortable private coaches, though 2 days include travel on the Tokyo public transportation system, and one day features a trip on a bullet train. The Otaku Tour includes an expert, English-speaking tour guide, who will help you navigate around Japan. Browse our detailed itinerary below for more information.
