Much of Japan’s influence on the world has affected the young, or those who were once young, whether through Pokemon or the Nintendo 64.
Get your tech fill in the Akihabara Electric Town
Learn about the story of Japanese science in the Science Museum
The modern face of Japan, in all its techy glory, is on show in the Akihabara Electric Town. One of the world’s great electronic centers, you will go around a plethora of shops offering some of the best, and esoteric, gadgets in Tokyo. With tiny establishments concentrating on their own small sub-niche to the largest electronics store in the world, it is a cornucopia for people looking to experience the best of electric Japan. In addition, it is also the centre of manga and anime fandom and has many shops devoted to each of those art forms. With a guide on hand to translate, and help, all members of the group will be able to get a feel for this very character-filledl neighbourhood.
Going with your guide to the Science Museum in historic Chiyoda district, you will see how the Japanese relationship with science has changed over the ages; and what new developments humanity can expect in the future. Designed for children, with plenty of exhibits, it has a great range of fun activities for them to do across its five floors. Each of those levels has its own theme and most of the futuristic items on show are there to be played with by little fingers.
Touriocity Tip: For a more exhilarating experience, and without having to make the trek to Disneyland, why not try Tokyo Dome City in central Tokyo? An amusement park with free admission and open all year round, you can either wander around and soak up the craziness, or pay for the rides you want to try.
