Located out in Kawasaki, about an hour’s train ride from Shibuya Station, you’ll find a museum dedicated to Fujiko F. Fujio, one of Japan’s most iconic manga artists, who’s also the author, illustrator and creator of Doraemon. The space is a treasure trove for fans of both the manga and animation, as it delves into the artist's early years, inspiration and creation behind Doraemon, as well as his other characters.
Not only does the museum have a café serving Doraemon-inspired dishes, it also offers a rooftop playground that's perfect for Instagram. If you’re planning a visit, here are just a few things you shouldn’t miss. Meanwhile, you can download our latest summer issue now for free – it features Doraemon on the cover.
