Fujiko F. Fujio Museum
Time Out says
Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.
Never mind its official name: as far as most fans are concerned, this Kawasaki tourist spot is simply The Doraemon Museum. Named after the pseudonymous artist that created its star attraction, the Fujiko F. Fujio Museum presents work by the late Hiroshi Fujimoto, including some 50,000 Doraemon sketches and other blue-cat bits and bobs. It's a very touchy-feely, hands-on affair, with minor wings dedicated also to the more esoteric aspects of the artist's personality - look out for the 'A Bit Mysterious SF' sci-fi section, if you dare.
Note that tickets are not available at the door and must be purchased in advance at Lawson convenience stores nationwide. Tickets for the following two months are released on the 30th of each month.
