Kyoto International Manga Museum – Portrait Corner


Are you a big fan of Japanese comic books, manga?

Then, Kyoto International Manga Museum is a must stop for you during your trip to Japan.

Tens of thousands of manga books welcome you in the museum.

Most of them are in Japanese, but you’ll still enjoy browsing through them if you are a big manga fan.

For those who are not a “big” fan, I recommend you try the portrait corner.

They will draw a manga portrait of you like this one.

Since this corner has become popular among tourists, be there before 11am when they start taking registrations.

The museum is open from 10am to 6pm and it’s closed on Wednesdays and statutory holidays.

The official website is here.

    1. Anime(animation) is graphics that are in motion.
      So, if it’s a portrait on paper drawn in Japanese manga style, it is a manga-portrait.
