FUJIKO F. FUJIO MUSEUM

This museum features the world of Fujiko F. Fujio, the pen name of a legendary manga master who created a magnum opus that includes Doraemon, Kiteretsu Daihyakka, etc. Located near Noborito in Kawasaki City, the closest train station, the museum also exhibits related paintings. Fujiko F. Fujio once observed, “Any manga artist is likely to dream, once in a lifetime, of leaving truly masterful work that children who read will remember forever.” As the artist hoped, for over four decades Fujiko F. Fujio continued to produce manga masterpieces that reflect children’s dreams and desires. The museum was specially planned for the enjoyment of children. Although, according to the staff, the truth is that 70% of visitors are “ex-children” who grew up reading Fujiko works.

Doraemon, a robot cat, helps the hero, Nobita, and his friends with secret tools taken from a “fourth dimensional pocket” in his tummy. Among these tools, the most popular is his Dokodemo Door. If you think of a destination while opening it, this magical device lets you go anywhere you desire. The travel distance is limited to within 10 light years.

This is another secret tool. Go into telephone booth, pick up the receiver, make a wish, and hang up at once. Then, if the phone rings, the world outside the booth turns into the one you want. You can try Moshimo Box in Harappa open space on the Museum grounds, where you’ll also find the Dokodemo Door.

At the Museum entrance, you can rent an audio guide called Ohanashi Denwa (available for adults, in English, Chinese, and Korean). The exhibition space shows the manga production process, original drawings, a drawing desk that Fujiko actually used, etc. The F Theater runs short movies of original anime works, and visitors can read Fujiko manga comics in the Manga Corner. The Museum is filled with a variety of content that enthusiasts will definitely appreciate. A third-floor café located next to the Harappa space serves an original menu drawn from episodes of Fujiko F. Fujio works.
