Leo is the perfect guide for this Otaku culture tour. I sent him information ahead of time about what I was interested in, and he customized an itinerary that went way beyond my expectations. He took me through several of the top nerd sites in both Akhihabara and Harajuku. He also provided cultural and historical explanations throughout the tour. If you're interested in learning more about Japanese quirky, pop culture, then this is the tour for you. Be sure to request Leo as your guide!
