Booked with Voyagin
Dec 2019
This is an amazing tour. Company was good about making sure we got to the meeting point. Our guide Lisa was awesome and was very knowledgeable about the area. It was late December on a Friday and her all to our selves as no one else had booked her that day. Weather was good and walking around was easy. Got to see lots of stuff that would have been hard to just stumble on and got lots of info on why they do things they way they do. From maids on the street to the rental boxes that have 2nd hand figures for sale to manga stores and the dollfie dream shop it was all very cool. It was pointed out what was safe to go into and what was more "adult". It made it easy to go shopping on our own time after the tour and find what we wanted. She also took us to the best Maid cafe for real (they all claim to be #1) and got us setup with the customs and inter-activeness of the event that is the maid experience. Would have been a bit awkward with out a guide in the cafe. Fantastic tour and will do it again!

This is a great experience in Tokyo. Our guide Emi was lovely and very informative. If you want a tour with someone local make sure you confirm this with the company. Originally they had booked us to do a tour with a girl from Oz. Cafe at the end is expensive but it's all part of the experience!

Dec 2018 • Family
My family booked a group tour with an English speaking French guide. She was great and accomodating. She recommended shops that were according to our interests and brought us to a maid cafe. It was a pleasant experience and definitely helped us on our 2nd day when we were on our own.

We booked the Akihabara tour, very different side of Tokyo. Very animated area and brought good souvenirs of these old games console like Sega. We love to see different sides of japanese culture. Our guide new the area very well and brought us to area we would not have visit by our own or found on the web.

Excellent tour, my son Max (23) and I were the only people on tour with guide Lisa.
A private tour then, with plenty of time to see around and act like geeks! Great Fun, highly recommended.

Very easy to book, great service by Akibaland Tours. Guide (nickname Sarah) spoke very good English, could answer a ton of questions, was very special to walk around with her, dressed entirely as a maid. We saw the small old electric town shops, entered secondhand minature shops, doll shop, retro game center, cosplay dress shop, and more. Highlight of course the maid café. Much better with a good guide than alone, there is so much to understand and learn about this world.
I’ve traveled to Japan multiple times, otaku culture was something I always found hard to enter as a tourist. With this help, I have seen a lot. Highly recommended!

Absolutely Fabulous
Oct 2017 • Family
We were greeted at our designated meeting place by lovely Sarah our guide and Akari our Kigurumi guide on time and our fantastic tour began. Both guide were friendly helpful and informative. We visited some great stores with Sarah giving us lots of information on each and we then headed to Home Cafe maid cafe where we we’re greeted and totally spoiled. I was pleasantly surprised that my daughter was given extra attention for her birthday with a cake and some great photos. Food was really yummy. After our lunch we toured more interesting places which we would never have discovered on our own. Sadly all too soon it was time to say goodbye to our lovely guides . But we will definitely book with akibaland tours again . A must do in Tokyo. Check them out

An experience like no other
Aug 2016 • Family
Went on this tour July 2016 with my husband and our 2 sons, ages 13 and 15 at the time. Cocco, our guide, was very friendly and informative about everything from collectible dolls and intricate costumes to video games, manga/anime, and 2-D boyfriends.

The highlight was probably when she took us to the maid cafe for some coffee and ice cream. Our older son got a personal photo taken with one of the maids, and it was also our wedding anniversary so we got invited up on stage for a song!

A very memorable morning that our sons still talk about as a high point of our Tokyo visit!

Wonderful tour of Akhihabara
Apr 2017 • Couples
Our guide - Sarah - was very knowledgeable, friendly, and answered all our questions. The tour accommodated our slightly slower pace due to walking with a cane. We had a great time at the maid cafe - it was much more fun than originally expected. The food was pretty good. I'd definitely recommend this for anyone who wants a great introduction to where to go in Akihabara and what its all about.

Great tour of Akihabala with Koko
Apr 2017 • Solo
My tour with Koko san in Akihabara is of much more fun than I ever expected. She is cute, easy-going, and thoughtful girl. She took me to most of the famous places in Akihabara including the biggest maid cafe, local shirne and many comic stores. What's more, I enjoyed our conversations on the local culture. I was luck to have her as my guide duirng my visit. I really enjoyed the tour and would like to recommend to my friends who are going to Japan in the future.
