“Fujiko-F-Fujio Museum” opened in September 2011 in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture. This is a museum that mainly displays original drawings and related materials drawn by Japan’s leading manga artist, Fujiko F. Fujio (real name is Hiroshi Fujimoto). You can see valuable materials such as “Doraemon” and “Perman”.
The opening of the museum was triggered by a proposal to donate about 50,000 manga and original drawings, including Doraemon, to Kawasaki City, Kanagawa Prefecture, which has a connection with Fujiko F. Fujio.
Inside the museum, you can learn about Fujiko F. Fujio’s precious original paintings and the world view, but there is also a fun-filled space where children can actively enjoy. It can be said that this is a museum where children and adults can spend their time smiling.
A white wall that jumps out at your eyes when you enter the entrance. This is called the “laughing wall”, and if you look closely, the relief of the character drawn by Fujiko is engraved. There is a blue sky on the ceiling, but if you look closely you may find something. One of the common attractions of this museum is that the more you look slowly, the more you can discover and discover.
There is a white, clean wall in front of the spacious, high ceiling entrance, and you can see Nobita-kun waving his hand when you look away. There are “Doraemon” and “Obake no Qtaro”.
At the reception, you will receive an audio guide “Ohashi Denwa” that explains the episodes related to the exhibition and “F Theater” where you can watch the original short film.
“Ohanashi Denwa” is Doraemon’s “secret tool” where you can listen to audio guides about the exhibits in this museum. Enter the number of the exhibit and get the secret information. You can listen to the sound from the speaker at the ear like a telephone, but you can also use your own earphone because it has an earphone jack on the top. Japanese can be selected for adults and children, and other languages such as English and Chinese are also available. This is exactly the “future tool”!
In the video exhibition room with a 200-inch large screen, original short films that can only be seen in the museum are shown. You can view once per person with the ticket you received at the time of admission.
A cafe where you can enjoy gourmet food with a character motif is popular enough to wait 2 hours. If you want to go to a café, we recommend that you get a numbered ticket as soon as you enter. Since this numbered ticket is waiting in turn, you cannot enter the store at a specified time.
