Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum

The Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum, in Takarazuka, Hyogo, is dedicated to the manga artists Tezuka Osamu. Built in 1994, the museum architecture is inspired by an ancient European castle. The theme of the museum is “love for nature and respect for life”, which was said by Tezuka himself. On the first floor is the permanent exhibition. There, you can learn about Tezuka’s childhood in Takarazuka. The temporary exhibit rotates three times a year. There is a information and anime search device on the second floor, which allows you to watch most of Tezuka’s works of animation. In the library, there are over 2,000 works by Tezuka, and visitors are free to read any of them. At the Anime Workshop, you can have a hands-on learning experience on animation production. The museum shop is a must for Tezuka fans, since there are some goods only available at the museum.
