Awesome museum with an extensive manga library, including a large foreign language collection, and a interesting timeline on the development and expansion of manga culture in English and Japanese.

It did not cost much $8.00... But just found it a little bit uninteresting for adults, a little better for kids...

No particular interest for this art but we went by curiosity in order to discover. Our young children liked the museum, our 18 years old boy found interest.

Centrally located in Karasuma St, the Manga museum was an unexpected bonus as we looked for an indoor activity. Set over 3 floors in an old school, the displays and artwork were fascinating. Comics are huge in Japan, but this is like visiting a fun...More

The museum is more like a private library. I was expecting unique exhibits, never-before-seen Manga, or hands-on learning. What we saw, was just a few book collections, which were all in Japanese. It was quite boring.

Really interesting place. Huge collection of Japanese manga. Did have a display of the history of manga provided in few languages, including English. The best thing was watching Japanese people really enjoying reading the manga provided. There was also an artist who will do your...More

Amazed by the scale of the place. The manga museum provides on the 1ns floor a huge room to explain the history and principles of manga - a really easy way to be educated on the topic, available in story boards in 4 languages. Outside...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
