Fully immerse yourself in the weird and wonderful world of Japanese otaku culture! Otaku culture - a fantastic virtual world of manga and anime frequented by Japanese boys and men - has become a phenomenon with international appeal. One of the centers of otaku culture is the neighborhood of Akihabara.

Exploring the area’s streets, shops, arcades and performance spaces, you will learn the history of the neighborhood from the rise of postwar Japan’s electronics industry to the modern “Cool Japan” era. Our small group will visit landmarks such as the Akiba Jinja and the Radio Kaikan, and walk narrow back streets. Try vending machine “delicacies”, visit shops for otaku culture specialties such as dating simulator games, fanzines and figurines, and learn about Japan’s “idol culture” at performance stages and idol shops; and enjoy a visit to one of the area’s famous “maid cafés,” giving you a chance to explore up close the fascinating world of cosplay and “2.5 dimensionality.”
