Witness the power of manga with your own eyes!!

See and enjoy, see and feel, see and be amazed by the world of manga. It’s a feeling that you’ll never forget.

The manga museum offers things to see like nowhere else, including original artwork that let you feel the thoughts of the manga artist in a way that you can’t sense from the printed books alone, as well as Kamishibai performances that are rarely seen in the modern day, and demonstrations of the manga production process.

Kamishibai

Time warp! Yassan's Nostalgic Kamishibai
The booming voice of a performer calling ‘the kamishibai is starting’ (‘kamishibai ga hajimaruzo~’) echoes through the museum. Follow that voice and you’ll reach a scene of Showa period nostalgia... find yourself invited by the sounds of roaring laughter, and laugh along to return instinctively to your childhood.
