Experience a De-Tour to West Japan!

Built with the wishes of our alumni in mind, our fifth Japan adventure for the Anime Detour community brings our crew to the breathtaking sights of Shikoku, Kyushu, and Hiroshima in western Japan! You’ll get to explore the places featured in YURI!!! On Ice, Spirited Away, Marmalade Boy, and more, shop your way through huge cities, and kick back in relaxing resort towns.

We begin on the Seto Inland Sea, where we’ll see the fishing village of Tomonoura (Ponyo), visit the Bunnies of Okunoshima, and cruise along the famous Shimanami Kaido bridge. You’ll ride up a chair lift to Matsuyama Castle, see the oldest onsen in Japan (Dogo Onsen, Spirited Away), and sail to the floating shrine on Miyajima! More adventures await in Hiroshima and Fukuoka, where we’ll shop and explore some of Japan’s largest entertainment districts and celebrate Halloween with the locals at the Nakasu Festival!

Of course, we’ll also do a LOT of relaxing. You’ll take in the best scenery on a De-Tour yet, including the idyllic resort city of Yufuin, the Hi-Kara old-school shopping district in Dogo, and the grand finale: 2 nights in a massive hot spring resort in Beppu, the largest onsen in Japan. 2020 will also be the most customizable De-Tour ever, with multiple options for flights and the choice to extend your adventure in Tokyo (with a guide!) or other locations.

So get your bags packed and get ready for the most unique De-Tour yet; it’s going to be a great time!
