The Yokote Masuda Manga Museum is located in Akita prefecture’s Yokote city and is the first true manga-themed art museum in Japan, containing over 220,000 one-of-a-kind artworks from 179 manga artists. It’s not all artwork displays, though; in the establishment there is also the “famous-quote road,” where the walls are lined with well-known quotes from manga in speech bubbles, as well as an area where you can learn about the history of manga, providing something to enjoy for both kids and adults. Additionally, if you find a piece in the exhibition of original artwork that piques your interest, you can read the manga in the museum’s library. There are also limited-time exhibitions and workshops, so be sure to check the official website before you visit.
