Day 2
Kicking things off with our anime tour, it's off to Tokyo's 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, our group will head to Akihabara, the town of anime. While there, enjoy shopping at some of the most popular otaku destinations, including Animate. 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, the SEGA arcade, a Maid Cafe, or just explore the city at your leisure during your vacation. Your anime tour will return to Akihabara the next day in case you didn't have enough time shopping or wanted to spend more time enjoying the Anime capital of the World!



After our time in Akiba, our anime tour will swing by the famous Ni-Tele Big Clock, or the Ghibli Clock as some call it. This massive clock was designed by Hayao Miyzaki himself and is bound to delight any Ghibli fan with it's charming mechanical show! Following our time at the Ghibli Clock, our anime tour will travel to the lively Tokyo Character Street in Tokyo Central Station. This lovely shopping arcade is lined with various anime-themed shops, including a Jump Store, Pokemon Center, Hello Kitty shop, Ghibli store, and more! There's also 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, and other familiar options.



Following our adventures at Tokyo Character Street, enjoy touring the grounds of 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 our anime tour ends for the day, our group will head east of Tokyo to visit the famed Ghibli Museum. This animation and art museum exhibits the work 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. After our time at the anime museum, your tour will then proceed to the hotel.
Breakfast
Day 3
Our morning begins with a visit to the stunning Tokyo Skytree to explore the Pokemon Mega Center, a must-go for all Pokemon lovers. Besides all the exclusive Pokemon goods offered at the store, they also have a battling and trading room for customers to interact with other Pokemon fans. There are also other great souvenir shops and anime stores to check out while at SkyTree's Solamachi shopping area. Browse the JUMP store or explore a few recommended stores like Ameshin, home to trendy Japanese candy art.



After our time at Skytree, our anime tour will travel to another one of Japan’s iconic towers in Tokyo. The beloved Tokyo-landmark Tokyo Tower has been taken over by the Straw Hat Pirates from One Piece, resulting in the spirited anime-themed park: Tokyo One Piece Tower. Known as Tongari Island, this permanent anime event is filled with attractions, character-themed games & restaurants, and a live-action show designed to wow fans of all ages. Enjoy your time at One Piece Tower before our anime tour heads back to Akihabara for more shopping and anime otaku adventures.



After making our way through the Electronics Town of Akihabara, it's off to the Robot Restaurant for an exciting 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 putting on a show to the traditional sounds of taiko drums and electrifying colors. We then return to the hotel.
