The world of anime, comics and figures


Tired of temples?
This tour visits many of the pop culture (animation, comics and figures) places and see related goods. A very good opportunity to experience another aspect of Japan's culture which otherwise boast of traditional culture.

Especially, Akihabara is known as "Electric town", and is also called Japan's pop culture center.
Akihabara is a bit different from other shopping districts; the town has more specialty stores that cater to "Otaku" (an obsessively minded enthusiastic fans).

You can also enjoy "Made cafe" (the coffee shop featuring French made waitress).
(In this case, we might skip one of other destinations)

The tour also visits Harajuku, plenty of stores selling teenager's fashion, cute and weird things! The crazy fashion still exists here at Takesita Dori(street), enthralling a wanna-be witch in Gothic Lolita fashion. You would see very unique aspect of Tokyo.
