Tokyo Blossoms And Anime Tour Description
Many people love anime because of the very real plots, storylines full of emotions, drama, and in some cases great exaggeration of the actions that are performed by the characters. Japanese anime can be easily recognized by the drawing style where characters have large eyes, outrageous haircuts, and humanized bodies. Fans from all over the world travel to Tokyo, as the metropolis is a bit of an epicenter for all things anime and manga.
On this tour, you will not only visit subculture heaven Akihabara, but you will also stay in a hotel in the middle of this bustling district. Akihabara is also near many of the best cherry blossom spots in Tokyo.
