Also, there are experience programs to make large metal badges and leather straps.

-About the Museum-
Ishinomori Manga Museum (also known as the Ishinomaki Mangattan Museum), opened in 2001 to share Shotaro Ishinomori’s works from many perspectives and to introduce visitors to the limitless possibilities of manga. From 1964, Ishinomori begins producing his most well-known works, such as “Cyborg 009,” “Kamen Rider,” “Sabu to Ichi Torimono Hikae” ("Sabu and Ichi's Detective Memoirs") and begins to carry his work over to animation and live-action film. In 2008, the “Shotaro Ishinomori Complete Manga Works” published by Kadokawa Shoten was awarded the Guinness World Record for ‘most comics published by one author.’

At Ishinomori Manga Museum, both children and adults can enjoy manga experiences everyday of the week!
