1: to know the history of Japanese animation

Museum that shows the whole picture of Japanese animation

If you visit Suginami Animation Museum, you can see the world of animation in Japan.

It is an animation museum.

It is great to understand the whole picture of Japanese animation, as materials are comprehensively displayed. It is interesting to see the history board about Japanese animation near the entrance. It is wonderful to see the displays that work places such as desks are replicated. It is possible to have practical experience including post recording.

"Work about Animation" (from December 18, 2013 (Wednesday) to April 13, 2014 (Sunday)) was a special exhibition. A wide variety of career paths were introduced, considering the whold process of animation production.

Also, "Animation Songs in Early Period" (from February 8, 2014 (Saturday) to February 14, 2014 (Sunday)) was a small exhibition. It was impressive to see cover sheets about sonosheets of popular Japanese animations including "Astro Boy," "Obake no Q-Taro," "Ultraman," "Ge Ge Ge no Kitaro" and "Star of the Giants."

It opened in 2005. It is a middle-sized public animation museum of Suginami City at residential area in Ogikubo, Suginami City, Tokyo. Its nearest station is Ogikubo station.
