Good tour for adults who read manga or watch anime

Good tour to experience unique cultures of Japanese gaming, including toys, arcade, selfie machines and maid cafe. To truly enjoy this tour, you need a little understanding of Japanese manga and anime to fully appreciate what u are experiencing. Maid cafe is definitely highlight of the tour. Even though this tour can be kids friendly, u need to either speak the language or be an adult to appreciate the maid culture of the japanese.
Fun and unique!

It was really cool to see all the shops. Recommended if this is an interest area! The maid Cafe was quite unique...so many things we could not have done without the tour.
A must see tour!

This was an awesome guided tour! It is definite must for lovers of anime and retro video games. Jeff did a great job as acting as a bridge to form bonds with other people on the tour. We all ended up hanging out and having a drink after which is really nice. Jeff had another job to get to but was very friendly and gave awesome suggestions. Can't wait for his next tour.

I had a blast! The second hand anime merchandise store was my favorite place, I will absolutely go again. By far the best part, though, was the tour guide! Sho was informative, personable, and was more than willing to accommodate our questions and requests. 10/10 would book a trip with him again!
I enjoyed the nostalgia...

I enjoyed the nostalgia of my childhood by seeing the old video games. The tour guide explained to us the meaning of the maid cafes and the popularity of it. Great for people who enjoy anime and manga
