I really wanted to like the tour, as we just came from the other Context Tour (Architecture with Hugo), but the quality/knowledge of the tour guide was well below standard this time. Hide was very nice but the whole tour was just him taking us to store after store for us to look at. There was never a thorough explanation of how these stores fit into the Otaku culture other than the fact that it was a part of it. So truly, what we got was nothing that was described on the website at all. We learnt nearly nothing more than what we would have if we went to those stores ourselves. If anything this tour should be made less expensive than the architecture tour.
Perfect blend of gaining local knowledge and insights with meeting and having a conversation with a lovely inhabitant of Tokyo.
Marion was an awesome guide! This is 100% worth the money. Awesome tour, great conversation, an amazing peak into a different side of Japanese culture.
