It's really more a library so if you do visit the best enjoyment to be gotten from it is to sit down and read stuff.
The exhibit is ok but you'll be done with it in 15mn

Nice museum, I enjoyed the elementary school side of it more than the manga side. A good selection of English manga to sit and read if you need a rest.

Fascinating museum with thousands of manga books on shelves and accessible to all. Located in an old school building with a outside reading area and cafe. It has a great shop, a lovely cafe, and is a place where many just come to read and chill out. I loved it.

I want to live here. I will read manga every day until I explode. Don't miss the cafe!!! Miyazaki, Miyamoto Nintendo, Adventure Time, Mobieus (sp?) plus a million billion more. Visit and be glad you are human.
