I would recommend this tour to any family with an "otaku" kid - it is an aggressive schedule, but there's no other way to see so much - my daughter is very sad it is ending today. Pre-tour we went to Osaka Universal Studios
Post-tour we'll stay in Tokyo, go back to Akihabara, Disneyland & Disney Sea & explore more in Odaiba - also visit Kappabashi Street and Tsukiji Fish Market.
We had western beds - I expected a small Ryokan instead of Hamanako Royal Hotel, but wondered if I'd survive a tatamai mat for a night - was happy for the bed!
We received a variety of different Japanese dishes, including beef, but also had a chance to eat on our own often enough to try what suited us.
She had a warm and genuine personality - loved her! Also, wearing "Luffy's" hat mad her so easy to spot! I don't know how she kept us all together, but she did! She's very organized - loved getting a schedule of the day every morning.
There was a mix of "high" culture like shrine and museums, but also "pop" culture like Akihabara & Harajuku, a wonderful mix for a family traveling together - we were drawn to the Anime/Manga part which the kids adored, but the parents were so happy with the rest.
Come and smell the sakura! During spring time all the usual parks and temples look extra beautiful with cherry blossoms, or sakura, in the background. Our Anime Tour take you to all the major anime and manga spots, and top cultural attractions like Tokyo and Kyoto.
