While Japan Deluxe Tours makes sure our tour guides take guests to only the top anime destinations, there's still a bunch of places to explore.

3) Odaiba (Statue of Liberty, Anime Shop & Gundam Front)
Coming in at number three on our recommended anime spots, your vacation can't go wrong spending a day in the beautiful bay area of Tokyo's Odaiba. The man-made island is home to numerous shopping centers, a convention center, the Tokyo Rainbow Bridge, the Life-Size Gundam Statue, and even a replica of the United State's Statue of Liberty.
If you're an anime fan or just looking to stay in luxury, Odaiba is the place to go.
