Day 2

Kicking things off for the day, our anime tour will take you to Tokyo’s anime-famous Kanda Shrine, a site featured in many popular animes such as Love Live!. Here, you can offer good luck charms for electronics and anime characters. After a short walk, you will be standing in the anime mecca of the world, Akihabara, or as locals call it, Akiba. Spend your time enjoying shopping at some of the most popular otaku stores, including Animate. Animate carries all kinds of character goods, mangas/animes, and popular video games. Your tour will return to Akihabara in case you didn’t have enough time to shop, explore, or find what you are looking for.

After our time in Akiba, we’ll head to the unique anime shopping complex, Nakano Broadway. In addition to the most current merchandise, you may be able to find vintage character goods as well in one of the many stores here. Don’t forget to try the famous eight-layer ice cream served downstairs too!


Next, your group will visit the famed Ghibli Museum. Designed by Miyazaki Hayao himself, the animation and art museum exhibits not only the history and techniques of the Ghibli movies, but also plays a short film produced exclusively for the museum. We’ll end the day with dinner and a bang at the Robot Restaurant. Enjoy the thunderous music, colorful performers, and giant robots for the most eclectic show experience in Japan.

Day 3

Today, we’ll start our morning exploring the Tsukiji Fish Market, former home of the world-famous tuna auction. Browse through the numerous vendors lining the walkways and pick up a couple of mouth-watering snacks made from the freshest ingredients while you are there. The tour then takes you the Shibuya Scramble Crossing, the busiest pedestrian crosswalk in the world. Be a part of the almost 2500 people crossing and pay a visit to the Hachiko Statue.



Next, we’ll dive into the center of Japanese street fashion in Harajuku. Shop through the trendy district while snacking on the famous Harajuku crepes and other kawaii treats from Takeshita Dori. For lunch, enjoy a delicious, authentic Teppan-yaki meal before we return to Akihabara. Your group will have some time to explore the anime capital of the world again before choosing how you would like to spend the rest of the day.

    1. Explore and shop until the bus returns to pick up those who would like to return to the hotel.

    2. Spend the rest of the day in the area and return to the hotel on your own. Your tour guide will provide instructions on how to get back to the hotel via train.





  2. After your time in Akihabara, the tour will head to the old town district of Asakusa where you can purchase traditional Japanese souvenirs at the Nakamise area. Take time to explore the neighboring Senso-ji Temple as well, one of Tokyo’s most popular temples. Return to the hotel afterwards.



  3. If you wish to continue the day, your tour will take you the Tokyo Skytree where you will get to shop at the ever so popular Pokemon Center, a must-go for all Pokemon fans.
