From design concept to successful creations, the museum is a good place to experience the animated world Mizuki Shigeru had created. Always good to go with a Japanese theough.

It is a small but informative memorial hall for famous anime Kitaro. Fans of him must go! Characters are walking along the main street and photo shooting are welcomed. Children and adults are having fun with them.

Full description of the artist and his characters. When you visit, Kitaro of human scale may come and show you the route. They offer special discount tickets for tourist.
