Kyoto International Manga Museum| 京都国際マンガミュージアム

Kyoto International Manga Museum opened in 2006. Its main role is to record, preserve, and present the long history of comic books and cartoons, and how humor has helped humankind overcome some challenging times. The museum’s growing collection currently consists of some 300,000 books and rare prints, and many of the current titles can be picked up from the “manga wall” to be read in any part of the former elementary school building, and outside on the lawn.
