Kyoto International Manga Museum

Museum Kyoto, Japan

An old elementary school turned into shrine to manga Kyoto International Manga Museum

The Kyoto International Manga Museum (京都国際マンガミュージアム, Kyōto Kokusai Manga Museum) was opened in November of 2006 and it consists of three floors and a basement, most of it walls lined with shelves of manga. Browsing this massive collection of manga in Japanese is one of the museum's main attractions. In addition to its massive collection of original manga, the museum also focuses on both the adoption and development of manga internationally; works of international manga artists are featured, and manga related events at the museum often involve foreign artists. The building, which now acts as the Manga Museum, was previously an elementary school: some relics of the former school are on display for visitors.
