Join an Otaku Summer Tour to explore the anime/otaku districts of Tokyo and Osaka, experience local anime culture, and see historic sites that have appeared in anime.

Our Otaku Summer tour is the perfect group tour of Japan for anime fans who want to explore the anime and otaku districts of Tokyo and Osaka, see the must-see locations from Tokyo, Hakone, and Kyoto that usually appear in anime, and enjoy once-in-a-lifetime immersive cultural experiences.

Start off our tour with a visit to Ikebukuro and Akihabara - two of Tokyo’s main otaku districts, with numerous shops for anime, gaming, and pop culture shops to browse, including Animate, Gamers, K-Books, and Otome Road. Our knowledgeable guide will take you to all the big name shops, plus to a few hidden ones that only locals know. While there, you’ll visit a maid cafe for lunch and enjoy a live underground idol show, featuring J-pop / J- rock idol-style performances. We also make time to see many sights in Tokyo that have made appearances in anime, like Asakusa Sensoji Temple, the Imperial Palace, Harajuku’s Takeshita Street, Shibuya Crossing, and the Hachiko Statue. We immerse in the imaginative worlds of Studio Ghibli at the Ghibli Museum, enjoy shopping at Nakano Broadway, and taste our way through Shinjuku on a food tour of Kabukicho and Golden Gai.

We head toward the city of Osaka, stopping along the way in Hakone to walk around the 5th station of Mt. Fuji (in clear weather, take a cruise of Lake Ashi, and hike the trails around the Owakudani volcanic zone. We go from there to Kyoto to see the city’s most historic temples and other historic sites, including the Golden Pavilion, Kiyomizu Temple, Nijo Castle, Fushimi Inari Shrine, the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, Togetsukyo Bridge, and the Gion Geisha District. While in Kyoto, we browse Nishiki Market, explore small shops on the Sannenzaka and Ninenzaka Preserved Streets, participate in a Green Tea Ceremony, learn about Samurai and Ninja at a local Museum, and taste delicious Sake in the Fushimi Sake District. We also visit the ancient city of Nara to see the Great Buddha of Todaiji Temple and mingle with the wild Sika deer of Nara Deer Park.

The tour wraps up in Osaka, where we tour otaku districts of Umeda and Nipponbashi Ota Road, which has its own collection of popular and hidden anime spots to visit with our guide. Osaka is also known for its street food, so we include a street food tour of the bustling Dotonbori district. Three street foods are included in the tour cost.

This Otaku Summer Tour is a perfect itinerary for adding an additional pre or post stay to visit local attractions such as Tokyo Disneyland or Universal Studios Japan. Ask us when booking the tour, and we will be glad to help arrange your pre and post-stay hotels.

Transportation for our Otaku Tours will be a combination of Japan’s clean and timely public transportation system and our comfortable and convenient private coach buses. The tour includes accommodations, meals as listed on the itinerary, and assistance from our friendly, professional English-speaking guides. Please browse the detailed itinerary for more information.
