Story & Recommendation
A must-see museum for manga fans in Kyoto
As you probably know, Japan is known as the country of manga! Japan is blessed with historical temples and shrines as well as the delicate Japanese culture, which also has a rich subculture with manga, anime, computer games and so on. In the Kyoto International Manga Museum, there are more than 300,000 manga, magazines and historical records from the Meiji Era (about 1870 - 1910) to recent years in various languages. They mainly house Japanese comics but there is also a space called “Manga Expo” for foreign books in more than 14 languages. If you visit the Kyoto International Manga Museum, you may be amazed by how rich Japan is in subculture, and find your favorite manga there!
