Suginami Animation Museum


Museums & Attractions



Learn about the history of Japanese animation at this Nishi-Ogikubo museum, where you can immerse yourself in a number of exhibits. It's not all standing and staring, mind – if you're the sort who wants to get involved, you can join one of the museum's anime production workshops or pick up tips at the regular talks given by industry professionals (all in Japanese, natch). The museum also boasts a library stocked with DVDs and comics that fans can enjoy, as well as an anime theatre.
