“Drawing”, “Making” and “Experiencing”Workshop

The museum offers workshops divided into three major programs.
These 3 categories are ‘MM Workshop’ which anyone can readily participate in, ‘Group Workshops’ which cater for groups of 5 people or more (advance reservation and additional fee required), and ‘Premium Workshop’ which provide personal tutoring tailored to your desires (advance reservation and additional fee required).
From hands-on experiences using professional manga art supplies, to creating characters, etc. these workshops allow participants to experience the charms of manga from the aspect of ‘making’ it.
