Many travelers are drawn to the large anime culture in Japan. Anime and manga enthusiasts, or “otaku”, will discover unique destinations dedicated to their anime culture, predominantly around Tokyo. Visit the One Piece exhibit at Tokyo Tower or head to J-World in Ikubukuro for its life size anime figures, including characters from Naruto and Dragonball. Japan holds annual events dedicated to anime and manga culture, such as AnimeJapan and Animelo Summer Live. Both events hold a major spot on otaku Japan itineraries for exclusive access to anime merchandise, guest panels, and new game releases. Shop in Japan’s variety of pop-culture shops for limited-edition anime goods. In Akihabara, interact with cosplaying waitresses in themed maid cafés. Explore Japan like never before with our special anime tours that show foreign travelers the local, fan-favorite anime locations of Japan.
