Visit the Japan you have only seen in Anime while on the Otaku Tour. This anime themed tour takes you to all the top anime sights that Japan is known for in Tokyo, Hakone, Takayama, Kyoto, and Osaka. But even more immersive are scenes from Japan we've hand-picked from popular anime, coupled with immersive Japanese experiences that give the anime- enthusiastic the feeling of venturing on an otaku pilgrimage. The itinerary adds the delightful atmosphere of Japan in springtime, bedecked in delicate pink cherry blossoms.

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. Then step into the world of Samurai with a Samurai Kempu Experience, a workshop that teaches the etiquette and history of these noble warriors with authentic katana swords. Wander around Akihabara - the crown jewel of anime culture, with streets lined end-to-end with manga and anime shops, retro video game stores, internet cafes, and thriving arcades - with plenty of time for shopping. One Piece Tokyo Tower beckons to all who enjoy the beloved series, and the Ghibli Museum awakens the child at heart, strolling through a Miyazaki-designed fantasyland of childlike wonder. Learn the art of drawing manga during a 2-hour experience at the Manga School Nakano International, where a professional artist gives a lesson on how to draw your own panel. Other Tokyo experiences include visiting the Shibuya Pokémon Center and the Unicorn Gundam of Odaiba.

The tour continues to Hakone and its idyllic country landscape. While here, embark on a pirate cruise around Lake Ashi, and ascend to the fifth station of Mount Fuji (weather permitting). Hakone also offers a treat for fans of the anime Evangelion, at the Hakone Yumoto Evangelion Shop. More anime-immersive experiences await, as the tour heads to Lake Suwa and Hida Furukawa - locations that inspired settings from the hit anime movie, "Your Name". This regional excursion includes an experience of Kumihimo - the traditional braiding art featured in the anime. The tour continues to Takayama, where guests can browse around the Takayama Morning Market for a hand- crafted souvenir. The next town, Seki, preserves traditional techniques used to make Japanese swords at the Traditional Swordsmith Museum. Then, at Nagakute, stroll through Morikoro Park and see a reconstruction of the house from My Neighbor Totoro.

On the way to Kyoto, the tour stops at the Iga-Ryu Ninja Museum - a former ninja house complete with secret passages and hidden rooms, which displays authentic ninja implements and weapons.
