Visit the Japan you have only seen in Anime while on the Otaku Tour. This specially themed tour blends the top anime, manga, ninja and samurai sights that Japan is known for in Tokyo, Hakone, Mount Fuji, Kyoto, Iga Ueno, and Osaka, including a stop at the new Ghibli Park in Nagoya. These must-see destinations are coupled with immersive Japanese experiences that give the anime- enthusiastic the feeling of venturing on an otaku pilgrimage. These itineraries are perfect for anime fans looking to take a summer vacation in Japan.

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's Sunshine City, which includes the flagship store of the Animate retail chain - known for their vast collection of anime merchandise. You will also have time to browse 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, 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. The tour continues to Nagoya, stopping at the fantastic new Ghibli Park. This new amusement park is a must-visit for fans of Studio Ghibli Films; the designs of its whimsical lands are taken directly from popular Ghibli Films like "My Neighbor Totoro", "Howl's Moving Castle", "Whisper of the Heart", and "Spirited Away". 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, Kosanji Temple, the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and the Gion Geisha District.

Finally, in Osaka, a city whose inhabitants are caricatured in many anime, we visit many of its top must-sees: Osaka Castle, Nipponbashi Den Den Town (the Akihabara of West Japan), the Shinsekai district (which is a strange fusion of New York's Coney Island and Paris, France), and the Dotonbori District - center of Osaka's street food culture. You will be transported around Japan on one of our comfortable private coaches in the company of an expert tour guide. Browse our detailed itinerary below for more information.
