This ain’t a tour. It’s the ultimate anime fan experience – and it comes with unparalleled flexibility.

You’ve spent months scouring the internet, navigating sites filled with misinformation while scrounging to book Ghibli Museum tickets and an Air B&B that the Japanese government could kick you out of any minute. You’ve planned out every hour. You’ve done a ton of research. By the end, you’re exhausted and thinking, “Hey, isn’t a vacation supposed to be… fun?” We couldn’t agree more.

Animated Spring has been tooled and re-tooled for almost a decade to create a Japan travel experience that helps you cross everything off your wishlist (and shopping list!), see the best of Japan, and keep your sanity in the process. We’re veterans of the anime industry who understand that anime fans are just as interested in exploring, partying under the cherry blossoms, and having a good time as they are shopping – but don’t worry, we’ll help you find that figure/doujin/Blu Ray/game on your wishlist too!

We’ll explore Anime hotspots like Akihabara, Nakano Broadway, Ikebukuro (home to the re-designed Pokemon Center and fangirl paradise Otome Road) and the Ghibli Museum. In Kansai†, you’ll get to explore Kyoto’s famous temples and shrines, shop Osaka’s “Otaku Road” in Namba, savor the region’s famous food, and take in the views a gondola in the mountains above Kobe. Plus, because we know there’s so much more than shopping on your wish list, we’ll also visit cultural sites like Meiji Jingu Shrine, cruise across the bay on a futuristic ferry designed by Leiji Matsumoto, and party with the locals at an Izakaya Dinner. Want more? Join optional trips to scenic Mt. Nokogiri, Tokyo Disney Sea, a fantastic hot spring “theme park” on Odaiba, and/or a fancy dinner on a Yakatabune longboat in Tokyo Bay! If this sounds like a lot, don’t worry; there’s also a full free day so you can shop more, check out a different spot in the city, or just relax and admire the loot you bought in Akihabara. ^_~

In 2020, we’re adding even more to the trip too! We’ll be spending a full second day in Kyoto so we can check out the bamboo forests of Arashiyama and the magnificent Himeji Castle.
