From 8th December 2018 to 24th February 2019, the Studio Ghibli Exhibition is entertaining young and old fans in Toyama City. Come to the Toyama Glass Art Museum and soak in the magic! This creative exhibition draws visitors into an intricate maze. As you figure out your way to the exit, the world of Ghibli envelops you with a wealth of history, culture, arts and philosophy. Don’t worry about getting lost, you’ll be presented with a road map at the entrance.
Virtual Reality is a relatively new concept, with many experimental titles still in the works by both large companies and independent developers. VR is the future of gaming, with hand devices and headsets to take you from just watching a screen to being fully immersed in the game’s world.
At the Ishinomori Manga Museum, visitors can see a special exhibit featuring one hundred of Sanrio’s iconic characters. There is everything from cute displays of illustrations, company history, vintage character goods and merchandise, and advertisements for Sanrio’s most recent mobile dating sim, manga, and anime titled Sanrio Danshi: Never Without My Favorite Friend.
Sayama Hills is a forest park about one hour outside of Tokyo located in Saitama prefecture. It was the forest that inspired Hayao Miyazaki to create the movie “My Neighbor Totoro.” If you’re as big a fan of anime as I am, then you’ll enjoy this small hike.
The cake is not always cut in this triangle shape, but always features the same ingredients: yokan and castella.
Japan is one of the leading countries in Asia for television shows and movies. Some fantastic dramas that have brought millions to tears, interestingly, were originally manga comics before they were made into animations and eventually live-action dramas.
Spiderman: Homecoming is the feature toy theme throughout the store. At the Jingumae’s Toy Sapien headquarters in Tokyo we see right from the outside that this is going to be something completely different.
Few things drew me to love Japan like anime. With all of their beautiful images, supreme storytelling, and characters you really care about kept in mind, I have to ask, can you be too old for anime?
