Explore Japanese art and culture at Kyoto International Manga Museum, an institution dedicated to Japanese comic books. Find out about the subject matter and drawing styles of some of the most famous and influential manga, and learn how the focus and aesthetics have developed since the making of the museum's earliest pieces, which date back to the 19th century. Set in an old elementary school (incidentally, a common setting in many manga), the museum has temporary exhibits and a permanent collection of over 300,000 manga. Take an introductory drawing lesson, and have your portrait drawn by one of the resident artists. To plan Kyoto vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

Unfortunately 5 exhibitions in both Japan and there is no other activity if it comes at the time of the afternoon (I stopped at 3). I just stopped briefly at the gift shop.
素敵な建物と外のスペースをもつ博物館内には、個人などから寄付された巨大な漫画コレクションを保持しています。外国人の人も多かったですが、ほとんどの情報は日本語だけなので、日本語を理解していない人にとっては少し難しいように見えました。日本のマンガ文化に触れてもらうためにも、多言語対応していけたらおもしろいですね。 more »Lovely building and holds a huge comic collection, individuals donated to the space outside the Museum in the. For those who do not understand that Japan is there were a lot of foreign people, but most of the information is only available in Japan, so a bit difficult to see. It is interesting to teach Japan's manga culture, multilingual and hope.
Not sure what I was expecting but I wasn't overwhelmed by this museum. It has a massive library of Japanese manga which you can sit and read, and plenty of people were. However, as I do not speak or read Japanese this was not accessible. The exhibitions had English explanations and the current special exhibition was interesting but other permanent displays looked a little tired. I would only recommend this museum to aficionados of the genre.
The place to be for all the Manga fans. You can buy Manga merchandise and sit in silence along with others and read any Manga from the shelf. They have a selection of Manga in various languages. You can also book an appointment with an artist, who will draw you and your loved ones, as a Manga character.
