Tokyo Anime Tour Winter (5 days)

Tour Description

If you want to dive deeper into the gaming culture and other subcultures in Japan, this is the tour for you! An experienced guide will take you on a tour of Tokyo’s otaku culture. If you translate the word ‘otaku’ to English it usually becomes ‘nerd’, but this doesn’t completely cover the meaning. Otaku come in all kinds of forms, there are train otaku, insect otaku, computer otaku, game otaku, and many more. For every obsession, there is a niche in Tokyo.

Coming to Tokyo for the first time can be a bit overwhelming, and you will see many things that you don’t understand. This is where a guide comes in handy, and they will make sure you will have all your questions answered and that you get a nice insider’s look into a part of modern Japanese culture. On the last day of the tour, you will have a free day during which you can opt for one of our optional tours, or you can spend it exploring the city by yourself.

Winter brings its seasonal joys in the mix like enchanting illuminations all over Tokyo, fewer crowds, seasonal snacks like yummy strawberries and amazake, winter sports, and clear air.

You will stay in a Western-style hotel in the Shinjuku area, a neighborhood with a very lively nightlife and plenty of shopping options.

Wifi is available on the bus and in all hotels.

Feedback from Clients

John A. – 2018 Autumn –
We visited such famous and beautiful sights
The guide spoke English that was easy to understand, he was very caring and attended to anything that was asked for. We visited such famous and beautiful sights and I especially liked seeing the historic post towns.
Reny J. – 2018 Autumn –
All sights were very enjoyable, very good selection of sights for a short time
Overall I really enjoyed this trip, in a small group it was easy to adjust. All the hotels and sightseeing were nicely selected. Thank you for making our trip to Japan very enjoyable. Big thanks to Kazu san, Kato san and Saji san for looking after our needs. I will recommend this tour to all my friends.
Jujit G. – 2019 Autumn –
The guide was the icing on the cake
Guide Kazu was such a pleasant personality. He was always kind and very very contentious of his role. There are still such wonderful people. The tour went from the city to the suburbs and the countryside and then back to the city which was very well chosen. We were exposed to different delicacies of Japan and I loved the variety.
