    Post Fans flock to Kyoto manga museum

    http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20120801f2.html

    Kyoto, with its long history and ancient temples, has acquired an additional and contemporary attraction for tourists — a manga museum that has become a mecca for comic-book and animation fans around the world.

    Found this to be cool.

    Thumbs up Kitakyushu touts 50,000-title manga museum

    Even more to envy!

    http://www.japantimes.co.jp/text/nn20120804a9.html

    KITAKYUSHU — A manga museum opened Friday near JR Kokura Station in Kitakyushu with a library boasting some 50,000 titles, with a strong focus on artists from the city.



    Summer reading: Visitors browse some of the 50,000 titles at a new manga museum in Kitakyushu on Friday. KYODO


    Kitakyushu is hoping the museum will help attract tourists and manga enthusiasts from other parts of Japan and farther afield. About 50 manga aritists hail from the city, including Leiji Matsumoto of "Galaxy Express 999" fame and Tsukasa Hojo, who wrote "City Hunter."
