On the Saturday between week 1 and week 2, we will have our City Tour! In the morning, we will head to the traditional district of Asakusa, checking out the iconic market and visiting the temple and shrine, followed by lunch, which is provided to you. After lunch, we will cut across the city to the otaku hub of Akihabara and will have the entire afternoon to explore specialty manga shops and any other unique shops that you want to check out before entering into the world of a maid café!

Tokyo & Shibuya
Tokyo, known previously as Edo, has been one of Japan’s major cities since the Tokugawa Shogunate era. Its famous attractions include Asakusa, Ueno, Shinjuku, Odaiba, Ginza, and Shibuya.
Shibuya, Shinjuku and Ikebukuro are among the top business districts and are major hubs for the city. They are significant hubs for fashion, entertainment and recreation. In these areas, people will find Japan’s major department stores, large shopping malls, restaurants and entertainment centres, and specifically in Shibuya, there is the iconic statue of Hachiko, one of most popular meet-up points for friends, and the world famous Shibuya Crossing where every change of the lights signals one of the largest crossings of people in Japan if not the world, sending people in all directions to their desired destinations in the city.
Asakusa remains reminiscent of old Tokyo, highlighted by the ancient Sensoji Temple and the traditional craft shops and food stalls, as well as the Nakamise shopping district. In addition, the area contains the Hanayashiki, Japan’s oldest amusement park complete with rides, eateries and cafes, and Sumida Park, a leisure riverside escape with beautiful views of Tokyo Skytree and a popular venue for big annual firework displays and cherry blossom events.
As for the famous Asakusa Kannon Temple, it is the oldest temple in Tokyo, one of the most popular and lively, and is a symbol not only for the area but Tokyo itself, making it a must-see destination for every traveller to Japan and Tokyo, including local Japanese people. Entering the temple is through the iconic Kaminarimon, or Thunder Gate, into the traditional market lined with food and craft stalls, to the end of the stretch with the famous Temple itself. Every day in this part of Asakusa feels like a matsuri or festival, and is a perfect place to enjoy delicious food in traditional restaurants and casual izakaya, take a ride on a rickshaw, and dress up in a kimono, yukata or happi and host your own personal photoshoot, an everlasting memory of your time in Tokyo.
For any fan of anime, manga, cosplay, idol culture, gaming and electronics, Akihabara is the hub of them all, located in the northeast corner of Tokyo’s most densely populated core outlined roughly by the popular circuit route train line known as the JR Yamanote Line operated by Japan Rail. The district contains everything from small one-off shops to large and popular electronic and department stores such as Yodabashi Camera and Bic Camera, the Tokyo Animation Center as well as a radio hall with its 10 floors of toys, trading cards, and collectibles. The area is the living hub of Japanese subculture, powered every moment by the passion of the geeks within.
