The unavoidable

The otaku are young people (or not so young) who devote their time and their money to their interest: the world of manga, animes, figurines, idols, and video games. Although most of these originated in Japan, they attract an international audience, who are always on the lookout for new "Made in Japan" products. Here is a list of events and places not to be missed if you are part of this community.

  • Suginami

Located to the west of Tokyo, the Suginami district hosts around seventy animation studios. The Suginami animation museum is a must for all anime fans. Here you can find out the history of Japanese animation and learn everything about making a cartoon.

Access: 15 to 20 minutes on foot from JR Ogikubo or Nishi-Ogikubo station, Chuo line.

For its events at Tokyo Big Sight, for its new giant Gundam statue (19.7 meters high) and for the MG RX-0 Unicorn, which attracts crowds including cosplayers, the Odaiba district is a must for all anime and manga fans.

Access: from Shimbashi, take the monorail on the Yurikamome line towards Toyosu, to either the Daiba or Odaibakiahinkoen stop.
