Experience the very best of Japan with a manga and anime twist on this unusual ten-night itinerary. With sightseeing time amongst the bright lights of Tokyo, historic Kyoto and vibrant Osaka mixed with visits to the top manga and anime museums, this trip is sure to be packed with fun. Read more >

Manga (Japanese comics) and anime (Japanese animation) have become integral parts of modern Japanese life and culture, and as such there is no way of escaping their influence. Without them Japan would definitely not be the brilliant and intriguing country that it is today!

In Tokyo you will kick off your trip with a full day of exploring with an InsideJapan tour leader. Wander Harajuku to catch up on the latest youth trends, spot cosplayers displaying their elaborate costumes based on their favourite fictional characters, and visit the fabulous Studio Ghibli Museum just outside Tokyo.

The latter is a must for all anime fans, giving visitors the chance to learn about the inner workings of the animation genius Hayao Miyazaki - revered creator of Spirited Away, My Neighbour Totoro and Princess Mononoke.

Heading south on the world-renowned Shinkansen bullet train, you will spend a few days in the cultural heart of Japan, Kyoto, before making your way to Osaka - Tokyo's fun loving cousin.

As well as the classic cultural highlights in Kyoto, you will have the opportunity to visit the International Manga Museum and spend an afternoon at the Toei Movie Park - where you can dress up as a samurai, geisha or ninja and explore some real Japanese film sets!

We also recommend a day trip to Takarazuka just outside of Osaka, where you can visit the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum.
