Eye on Anime: Tour Japan - $100 Off

An Astro Boy mural created to mark the opening of Tokyo's Fukutoshin subway line.Hayao Miyazaki fans and anime junkies, if you're planning a trip to Japan this December to get the scoop on the latest movies, video games and manga in the J-pop genre—or just get a glimpse of Astro Boy attractions around the city—you oughta consider taking the Jump Festa 2010 Tour. Right now, Pop Japan Travel is offering a $100 off coupon through Friday, Oct. 23 (but you have to register on their forum to download it).

You can check out Jump Festa's Dec. 15 – 23 touring schedule here; highlights include visiting Ghibli Museum, which features all things created at Studio Ghibli; watching the animated One Piece Movie – Strong World, based on the wildly popular anime; and taking an exclusive trip to an animation studio to see for yourself how anime is created and produced. Mind you, it's all during Japan's infamous winter "illumination" – the holiday period when numerous cities host spectacular light shows. Registration ends Nov. 13, 2009.


If you've been on a Pop Japan Travel tour before, what did you think of it? Personally, visiting Ghibli Museum sounds pretty cool; it's showcasing a special exhibition of Miyazaki's work on the recently released Ponyo until May 1, 2010. And being able to screen the One Piece film before it opens in the U.S. is nothing short of awesome. If you're signing up for Jump Festa 2010, let us know what you're looking forward to.
