PacSet Tours Launches; Announces Animated Spring Tour for Anime Fans

In order to give fans of Anime and Japanese Pop Culture a chance to visit Japan, PacSet Tours - a brand new tour and travel company - has officially commenced service and announced their initial tour lineup via their website,

Their first tour, the Animated Spring Tour, is scheduled to take off in March 2012. Created for fans of Anime and Manga, the tour is scheduled to visit Tokyo's famed Akihabara and Nakano Broadway shopping areas, as well as the Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) and a yet-to-be-named Anime production studio. The tour also includes an optional extension to the Kansai region that takes guests to otaku hotspots in Osaka and Kobe, as well as the majestic temples and shrines of Kyoto.

PacSet Tours Co-founder and Director, Evan Miller, says that it was fan demand that spurred the creation of the company. "Even after many tourists turned away from Japan following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami, I heard from a lot of Anime and Japanese pop culture fans that still wanted to visit Japan," says Miller. "Tourism is one of the best ways we can help Japan's economy recover, so we're looking forward to helping people get back to Japan and have a good time!"

Miller says that PacSet plans to roll out a number of tours in the coming weeks, as well as other travel and tour options. The Animated Spring Tour is scheduled to begin March 19 and run until March 26 or March 29 for guests on the Kansai extension. Customers with questions about the tour and other packages are encouraged to contact [email protected] for further information.
