Fujiko F Fujio Museum, the land of Doraemon and other works done by Hiroshi Fujimoto and Motoo Abiko.
Stopped by a random cafe for breakfast. It was vegetarian. Tasted surprisingly good though.
Some train station pics
Special Doraemon-themed shuttle directly to the museum ^_^
Outside the museum were some windowed display cases… I wonder how many of these have MFC entries xD
Bought tickets and a nice lady led us in. Unfortunately photos aren’t allowed inside except a few designated locations, so no pics, soz! Imagine a typical art museum with artwork/replicas everywhere, short films showing the drawing process or clips from the various animes, and a hand-held guide that tells you stuff when you dial the exhibit’s number.
In the rest area half way through the museum was this fun water pump
The washrooms were pretty funny
The cafe had some fun looking food
One area I was allowed to take pics of was the open play area. The gashapon machine there was pretty impressive
We watched a special feature short film there. Like with Mei to Koneko Bus at the Ghibli Museum, the Japanese was actually simple enough that I could understand most of what was going on. Not knowing much of Doraemon didn’t really help though xD
Outside was a nice open grassy area with statues and a bunch of references to Doraemon, Perman, Q-taro, and other Fujiko Fujio works
Nice panorama of the area
Gift store was full of stuff that I didn’t buy
Taking the shuttle back
This is a pear jelly drink. It immediately became my favourite drink of the entire Japan trip.
Stay tuned for more
Japan Akihabara goodness!
