About
Virtually visit Tokyo's Electric Town in Akihabara (Akiba) with a local guide! Join this Akihabara anime tour in Tokyo to hunt games and anime goods. This virtual tour has been designed for those who plan to visit Akihabara someday and have interests in Japanese anime & game culture. What travelers treasure the most during the trip is time. To make the full use of every minute, getting a guide is a great way to avoid all those time wasted on getting lost in the street. Especially in Akihabara where there are tons of travelers just going there and purchasing electric products around station, you cannot expect all the fun subcultural spots to be set around station. If you are a game or anime lover, you may get disappointed by finding it so hard to reach all the fun spots like I used to experience. Joining a tour will save you a lot of time and energy for a better traveling experience! *All times specified are in Japan Standard Time(GMT +9:00). Please check your time zone*

Akiba tour 2020
Oct 2020 • Solo
A fantastic tour of Akiba with a great knowledgable tour guide. Well worth the time, you will get a good look at the back streets and lesser known gems of Akihabara.

This was fun. :) When he walked around the street I really felt like I was back in Akihabara. :) It was a good break from lockdowns and good for travelling when you don't have much money!

Tommy is an expert guide. He explained the tour of Tokyo Akhibahara in good English. We visited everywhere in Akhibahara, something that we can do if we go by our self.

It was a all together a different experience to know so much about gaming culture in Japan. And trust me not necessary to be a gaming fan to take this tour - well explained by the guide.

Video & audio quality was awesome!! Speech quality was very easy to follow.

Would like to see more vitual tours and know more about Japanese culture.

Keep it up!!

Thanks!!
