What to expect
Take an insider’s tour of the world of Japanese otaku culture on this private tour of Tokyo’s famous Akihabara Electric Town. This intriguing area offers a paradise of stores and cafes catering to fans of video games, comic books, cosplay culture and discount electronics. Start your exploration by meeting your guide at your hotel, continuing by public transport to Akihabara for an afternoon start time. This iconic area, which was nicknamed Akihabara Electric Town due to its origins as an electronics district after World War II, has evolved in recent years into a cultural hub for lovers of anime, manga, cosplay and video games, who refer to themselves as otaku, or “nerds.”  Begin your walking tour of Akihabara by performing your favorite songs with family and friends at a decorated karaoke room (holds up to 5 people). One complimentary beverage is included with your karaoke visit, but feel free to order a few more and some snacks if you’re feeling hungry or thirsty. Continue your exploration by taking part in a fun purikura photo shoot. This fun photo machines offer hilarious options to customize your image with stamps, sparkles, and frame before printing out a copy you can keep as a souvenir. When you finish with your photo shoot, follow your guide to one of Akihabara’s famous maid cafes. Here you’ll find waitresses dressed in playful French maid outfits, treating guests as if they’re in a private home rather than a public restaurant. Get a welcome from your maid with a “Welcome home, master (or mistress)” greeting, and then enjoy a complimentary choice of coffee or tea (other food or drinks at your own expense). Enjoy an hour at this entertaining example otaku culture, and for an additional fee, joining your waitress to play a game or sing a song.  Finish your Akihabara excursion at Don Quijote, affectionately known by residents as “Donkey.” This sprawling retail superstore sells everything from luxury goods to everyday groceries. Literally every inch of shelf space is packed with products, offering a fun chance to dig for a bargain. Your tour concludes here, leaving you with time to do some shopping.

My son's favorite tour!
Mar 2018 • Family
This tour was our favorite of the 6 days we were in Tokyo! Benchi (Ben) was awesome! My son who is 14 absolutely loved this tour! Benchi met us at the hotel then we went to Akihabara which started with karaoke! Now honestly I thought this was going to be boring with just us 3 but it was such fun!! And Benchi sounds like an American Idol singer! Next we went to the Maid Cafe which was also very interesting! Benchi showed us wear to eat and what else to do. Once the tour was ending he even told us where to shop in Shibuya where my son of course got some awesome clothes! Benchi was the best tour guide he and my son now follow each other on twitter!
