  • 7. Otaku Otaku is a Japanese term for people with obsessive interests. Literal meaning – “your home”. Its contemporary usage originated with Akio Nakamori's 1983 essay in the magazine Manga Burikko. Nowadays Otaku is a subculture of international manga and anime fans.
  • 8. Otaku tourism Otaku tourism: travel by mainly male fans of otaku subculture to anime ‘sacred sites’ (the locations that feature in favorite anime). Anime pilgrims are pioneers. Otaku tourists are followers. The fundamental motivation of travellers is to visit the sites that appeared in anime. Anime pilgrimage began in the 1990s. Otaku tourism and anime pilgrimage are core elements of the Japanese government’s ‘Cool Japan’ strategy in the 2010s.
  • 9. The touristic behavior patterns of anime pilgrims: Anime pilgrims tend to travel individually or in small groups, and group tours are rare. The touristic behavior patterns of anime pilgrims: 1. Take photographs of the locations they visit from the same angles that the places are shown in the anime. 2. Leave mementos or evidence of their trips such as objects, comments or illustrations. 3. Take laptop computers or mobile phones with them and provide live updates or pilgrimage diaries in real time on internet notice-boards, blogs or video sites like YouTube. 4. Decorating cars with anime stickers and illustrations. 5. Dressing up in the costumes and appearances of anime characters. 6. The acceptance of interaction between travellers and host community, and among fellow travellers.
