Discover all the secrets of Japanese manga

The Kyoto International Manga Museum invites you to discover or rediscover, far from Western clichés, an art in its own right in Japanese culture: manga. Come and learn more about its origins, history, developments, and place in Japanese society.

Fans and casual observers alike can walk around the old classrooms while discovering the history of manga, from its stylistic evolutions to its changes.

Walking between the libraries, the educational panels (in English), and the many posts, everyone notices that the manga rhythm the daily life of hundreds of thousands of Japanese, all generations combined, who enjoy reading series adapted to their tastes and their ages: shojo, shonen, or seinen.
