Create an itinerary including Kyoto International Manga Museum
Explore Japanese art and culture at Kyoto International Manga Museum, an institution dedicated to Japanese comic books. Find out about the subject matter and drawing styles of some of the most famous and influential manga, and learn how the focus and aesthetics have developed since the making of the museum's earliest pieces, which date back to the 19th century. Set in an old elementary school (incidentally, a common setting in many manga), the museum has temporary exhibits and a permanent collection of over 300,000 manga. Take an introductory drawing lesson, and have your portrait drawn by one of the resident artists. To plan Kyoto vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • Immense variety of Manga books! You can read them all but it was too busy so no more place to sit down. There is also a cool shop that you can enter without paying for the museum itself!
  • If you are have a favorite manga you should definitely visit this Museum during your stay in Kyoto! My favorite part was being able to sit and read original copies of JoJos Bizarre adventure manga (English version), they don’t make them like that anymore! The museum features a special exhibition, cafe, gift shop, and entire library of manga genres in several languages.
