The "FUJIKO FUJIO Ⓐ THE EXHIBITION" is running from Saturday 27th July to Sunday 18th August at the Nishitetsu Hall, Tenjin, Fukuoka! The legendary manga-ka (manga artist) FUJIKO FUJIO Ⓐ came to Fukuoka on Friday 26th July to help open the exhibition! We rushed over to cover his visit and take a sneak peek!

"I am so grateful that I can continue to draw manga that I like!"

Ⓐ spoke to the reporters who were covering his visit. He shared funny stories from his younger days and explained what aspects of the exhibition visitors should keep an eye out for! He also took some time to speak about himself and what he is currently up to. He is now 85 years old, and still draws manga. In an energetic tone he said, "I have never found the prospect of drawing manga to be overwhelming. I am so grateful that I can continue to draw manga that I like." He also told the media representatives that were present about his visit to Fukuoka. He mentioned that he tried some delicious "gobo-ten udon" (udon noodles topped with tempura-fried burdock) at lunchtime. Hopefully he got to sample a lot of tasty local delicacies during his time in the area!

An exhibition full of unique exhibits!
