Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 4:08 pm


One year ago, Pop Japan Travel went on hiatus due to the tragedy that occurred in Japan’s Tohoku region. Fans and staff alike have been eagerly waiting for the return of the tours, and thanks to the hard work of our staff and the support of our fans, Pop Japan Travel is proud to announce a triumphant return with the All-Japan Alpha + Omega Tour! The Alpha + Omega tour will be our most adventurous excursion ever, featuring a taste of Japan for every palate. We’ll be visiting an anime studio, meeting Japanese manga artists and learning about their creative process, going on an intimate tour of Shibuya’s famous 109 department store, sitting in the audience of a Japanese television store, and shopping the streets of Akihabara, Nakano, Harajuku, and more!

And that’s just Tokyo: after that, for the first time, Pop Japan Travel will be taking all tour participants to Kyoto and Osaka for a taste of Japan’s southern flair. Walk the streets of historic Kyoto, discover the spiritual roots of modern manga at the Osamu Tezuka museum, and taste the delicious street food on Osaka’s lively Dotonburi. If you’re looking to experience Japan outside of Tokyo, now’s your chance!

Want to taste the very best of Japanese cuisine? For this tour, Pop Japan Travel will be introducing the Gourmet Course! For the first time, PJT will include the option to buy meals with the tour group. We’ll serve you up everything from staples like sushi and ramen to exotic regional cuisines and well-kept secrets.

Pop Japan Travel invites you to experience all this and more! Mark your calendars, the Alpha+Omega Tour is scheduled for August 29th to September 7th! The tour’s land-only price starts at $2,490, and offers further customization (such as breakfast at the famous Tsukiji Market, an anime song karaoke night, or a pub crawl in Tokyo’s Shimokitazawa neighborhood) to ensure our tour participants get the precise Japan vacation they’ve dreamed of.

Meet the Mangaka: Rizu Natsumizu

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 3:27 pm

Good Morning begins when salaryman Hayashi wakes up in bed one morning, lying next to another man! This man, his business client Shinohara, is rumored to be gay, and tells Hayashi that while they were drunk the night before, they had a passionate rendezvous..!

We got the chance to ask Good Morning author Ritsu Natsumizu a few questions about herself and her work – check it out! Did you know she’s a big fan of American comics?

  • · What’s your favorite part about drawing salaryman stories?
    The fact that I can depict the emotions and lifestyles of normal, average people who are just like me.
  • · You wrote a whole story about melon bread! Are you as obsessed with it as Fujino is? What’s your favorite snack?
    I love melon bread! I love all sweets but my favorite has to be chocolate. Kit Kats & chocolate covered cookies are the best.
  • · Do you listen to music while working on manga? If so, what kind?
    I listen to the radio while drawing but then switch to pop music during the lettering process so I can concentrate on the dialogue. Some of my favorite bands include Weezer, Fountains of Wayne, the Flaming Lips, Jonsi, and Miniature Tigers. I listen to MIKA or the Red Hot Chili peppers when I want to get fired up and Oasis or the Beatles when I feel like singing along. I enjoy all sorts of genres and listen to any kind of music as long as the melody is up-tempo and beautiful.
  • · Apart from yourself, who’s your favorite manga artist?
    I read a lot of American comics and I truly enjoy the work by Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale. Superman for All Seasons is one of my all-time favorites.

Don’t miss out on Natsumizu-sensei’s Good Morning – find out how Hayashi and Shinohara handle the aftermath of their supposed drunken exploits, plus read about an epic, workplace melon bread war! You can grab the book on Akadot now!
