In the morning we will be going on a Tokyo City Tour. We will proceed to the Imperial Palace, the former site of Edo Castle. You can explore the park, surrounded by moats and stone fortifications, in the heart of the city. Asakusa Kannon Temple, an active place of worship, is where you can see the largest paper lantern in Japan. Here, discover the difference between a Shinto Shrine and a Buddhist Temple. Then explore Nakamise Market, which resembles a traditional style street shopping of a bygone era. No anime tour is complete without a visit to Akihabara. Here you will have the chance to go shopping for your Otaku needs. Afterwards we will meet up for our maid café experience at Maidreamin Café. We will cover the table charge, but your food will be your own expense.
The day starts with heading towards Odaiba where we will have the opportunity to take a picture with the life size Gundam. Next is Tokyo Tower, which was remodeled to be One Piece themed.

Afterwards, we will head to the Pokemon Center Mega Tokyo in Ikebukuro. If you feel the need to catch ‘em all, then please do so.
AnimeJapan is a large anime convention that brings in thousands of attendees to the event. There will be many companies from the industry present at the event as they promote their upcoming projects.
