Day 2
Before our big day at the International Anime Fair - AnimeJapan tomorrow, our Anime tour will visit some of the best anime sites Tokyo has to offer. We begin with a trip to the anime-famous Kanda Shrine. Featured in many popular anime such as Love Live! and collaborating with hit anime & manga like My Hero Academia, Kanda Shrine is the only shrine to offer good luck charms for electronics and anime characters. After a brief time snapping photos of your vacation at the Anime shrine, we will head to Akihabara, the town of anime. While touring Akihabara, enjoy shopping at some of the most popular otaku destinations including Animate or the Akihabara Culture Zone. Animate carries all kinds of character goods, electronics, and games from current and popular anime/manga series. There's plenty of free time in Akihabara, so Japan Deluxe Tours recommends exploring Super Potato for vintage games, SEGA arcade, visit a Maid Cafe, or just explore the city during your Anime Japan Tour. Your anime tour will also return to Akihabara later this week for more anime shopping and otaku culture.



After our adventures in Akihabara, our anime tour is off to Tokyo SkyTree to visit the Pokemon Center & Jump Shop. These two shops are can't miss destinations for Anime shopping in Tokyo, and the stores in Tokyo SkyTree are considered some of the best among all locations. Browse through great stores including the Jump Shop, a dedicated store to Jump anime and manga. There's also plenty of shopping to be done for souvenirs at SkyTree, or feel free to ride to the top of the tower for epic views of Tokyo (additional fees may apply).



Once we finish with our shopping at SkyTree, we head east of Tokyo to tour the world-famous Ghibli Museum. This animation and art museum exhibits the works of Miyazaki Hayao, creator of world famous films such as My Neighbor Totoro, Princess Mononoke, Spirited Away, and Ponyo on the Cliff by the Sea. Ghibli Film fans will definitely enjoy the artistic museum, which not only exhibits the history and techniques of animation, but also plays short movies in a theater room produced exclusively for the museum. We then return to the hotel.
Breakfast
Day 3
Today’s the big day of the International Anime Fair - AnimeJapan! Join the many cosplayers, otaku, and anime lovers of all degrees in the biggest Anime event in the world. Anime, manga, doujinshi, guest speakers, figurines, rare items, video games, limited and exclusive covers are all accessible at this large event. Enjoy your day exploring the grounds and meeting people with the same passion as you!



If the fair isn't enough, you also have the option to join an optional tour at 3pm to explore the famous Shibuya Crossing & Hachiko Statue! This crosswalk gathers as much foot traffic as New York City, and crossing is an experience unlike any other. While here, our Tokyo tour will also visit the popular Hachiko Statue close to the station. The statue is based on the internationally-known story of Hachiko, the dog who would come back to the station every day to see his owner. This Tokyo spot is a popular meet-up area for couples and friends when visiting Shibuya Station. Anime fans have probably seen this famous statue and crosswalk in some of their favorite anime & manga works like Persona5 or Tokyo Ghoul. After making our way through the crossing with your tour guide, we will then return to the hotel.
Breakfast
Day 4
Starting things off for our anime tour, our group will first head to Odaiba to see the massive 72 foot Unicorn Gundam! This life-sized mobile suit stands watch over Tokyo's bay and is a must for any anime fan. After our brief photo stop, our anime tour will travel to the lively Tokyo Character Street in Tokyo Central Station. The shopping arcade is lined with various anime-themed shops, including a special edition Pokemon Center, Jump Shop, Ghibli Store, Hello Kitty & Sanrio store, and other anime & manga themed stores! Character street is also home to Tokyo Ramen Street, Okashi Land, and Gachapon Street, perfect for someone who wants some lunch and to do a little more gift shopping for friends or for themselves! We recommend trying Tokyo Ramen Street for lunch, or explore the station and try great choices like Ikinari Steak, McDonald's, or other familiar options.



After our adventures at Character Street, guests can choose between going to Tokyo Tower, or head straight to Akihabara for more anime travels. Tokyo Tower, one of the city's most prominent landmarks, has been over by One Piece, resulting in Tokyo One Piece Tower. Known as Tongari Island, this event is filled with attractions, wonderful restaurants, and a live-action show designed to wow fans of all ages. Enjoy games based on all your favorite Straw Hat Pirates and enjoy special hand-sketched exhibits from One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda himself.



Following our time at the tower, our anime tour will head back to Akihabara for more shopping and fun! Explore all the stores you missed, or go back and pick up that retro gaming console you weren't sure you wanted or not. Pop into a maid cafe to have a beautiful maid greet you and help you relax during your epic anime vacation. Once we finish up in Akihabara, our tour is off to the east to visit the anime specialized shopping complex: Nakano Broadway. Explore the many stores dedicated to anime and otaku goods or try the eight-layer ice-cream they serve downstairs. Before the day is over, it's off to the Robot Restaurant for dinner and a show. Enjoy thunderous music and crazy colors at a show unlike any other. Be sure to have your camera ready for the giant robots and dancing performers. We then return to the hotel.
Breakfast Dinner
Day 5

During your free day, Japan Deluxe Tours recommends a short train ride to Odaiba for shopping and to see the life-size Gundam protecting the island at the Gundam Base. Even if you aren't into anime, snapping a selfie with the massive Gundam Robot is a must during any Tokyo vacation. The towering 72 foot Unicorn Gundam Robot is the embodiment of Japan Anime & Robot culture!
