KITAKYUSHU MANGA MUSEUM (北九州市漫画ミュージアム)

This is Fukuoka
LANGUAGES AVAILABLE: MCPO AWARD 2019

A captivating spot you could spend a whole day at!

KITAKYUSHU MANGA MUSEUM
Manga has been gradually growing in popularity in America since I was a kid, and I think that almost anyone has read at least one or two manga nowadays. In spite of this, though, knowledge about how manga is made is a lot more lacking. The KITAKYUSHU MANGA MUSEUM, with its approximately 70,000 volumes of manga available for reading and its classes on how to draw manga, was a place even I, who knows a lot about manga, could enjoy and discover new things in. With the popularity of manga and anime abroad, we've heard that the number of foreign visitors is increasing!

Mangaka signatures line the display case opposite the front entrance! Don't miss this!

I of course recommend the "Reading Zone," but if you have plans to do other sightseeing, make sure to keep an eye on the time! You might get really into a manga and spend the entire day here!
