Best Place Visited on the Japan Tour: Nakano Broadway for anime.
Seeing Mt. Fuji for the first time & the Kintai Bridge for cherry blossoms.
Best Experience on the Japan Tour: Yoyogi Animation Gakuin, an English translation of documents would be greatly appreciated.
Also Iga Ninja Museum with more information on history in English.
Want to Visit again/next time: Watching traditional Tea Ceremony & experiencing the wearing of a Kimono traditional style. *Seeing more of Mt. Fuji.
Pretour events need to have an extra notification night before departure, especially with the additional costs involved! Same as optional extra/early start ie. Tuskiji Fish Market.
I sought a tour to Japan with two things in mind: Anime and Cherry Blossoms.
Though there was ample time dedicated to the cherry blossom sites, there was barely any time given to the anime shopping districts. Suggestions for future tours: Anime fair optional, provide information about fair focusing on promotion of Anime series, not products.
J-World optional, as it focuses on children, add information. Pokemon Centre & K-books provide good supplies for Anime in same area. Adding information that includes Anime stores in each location would also be helpful ie Rhiga Royal Hotel (Day 10) has a large anime store across bridge walk way that closes at 1900- missed if you drop luggage off in room on arrival.
Everything was provided in the ablutions & rooms were in a clean state. Service from staff was excellent & meals at all of the hotels were exceptional. Tokyo Hotel was perfectly situated for travel and convenience.
All meals provided were delicious, exciting, and highly enjoyable with a diverse range of meal types.
It also helped that there was some additional commentary from the tour guide to understand what was served made the meals more interesting.
Hide-san added some tid-bits of information throughout the tour that added to the experience & did his best to keep the tour on track. Assisted individuals when required & provided DVD's & CD's to add knowledge & entertainment value.
The greater culturally renown sites were singled out on this tour & made the overall experience well throughout. When there is so much to see, it helps to have the sites narrowed down to the most prominent sites.
International AnimeJapan Fair is the largest anime convention in the world! With over 100,000 vendors, artists, cosplayers, and fans gathering from around the world, this convention is a must for anime lovers.
