The museum is not a large place but gives an explanation & understanding of Shigeru Mizuki. It is not well sign posted in English as we walked past it the first time. The staff were very helpful and supplied us with an English version audio & without this, it would have been impossible to understand the significance of this writer in Japan. It also provides a background to the yokai that are found along the main street. We also stumbled upon the area at the rear of the museum which includes a large children's play area with many of the characters and a souvenir shop. If you are visiting Sakaiminato, this display is definitely worth a visit.

Fans of youkai--or fans of classic manga--will enjoy this, though I gained an even deeper appreciation for Mizuki Shigeru as a person and explorer and historian after visiting. If youkai, manga, and folklore aren't your thing, however, you might just find it weird and want to skip it.

This museum is small but very interesting as it contains many of Mizuki's original works. The museum is small and although there is an English audio guide, much of the signicance of many displays will go right over the head of non-Japanese speakers. That said, it is an essential sight if you are walking the Shigeru Mizuki road.
