Or perhaps streets dedicated to Japanese sub-cultures like otaku and kawaii are what fascinates you? In that case, your host could lead you through Shibuya, where owl cafes are an everyday occurrence, or Ikebukuro, a neighborhood in north-western Tokyo that’s known for its indie anime and manga stores and quirkily themed bars - like the Detective Cafe, where real private detectives mix the cocktails…
