Visit new worlds at the Fujiko F. Fujio Museum — home of the Doraemon museum, exhibitions, café, and shop. The purpose of this museum is to instill the same hopes, dreams, joy, courage, and curiosity as is found in Fujiko F. Fujio’s seminal Doraemon series. Created for a wide range of visitors, this museum offers interesting sights to one and all. Read manga (graphic novels) and appreciate the charm of the original works; experience Fujio’s science-fiction world; watch short films that you can’t see anywhere else in the world; and enjoy the wide range of exhibits.
Fujiko F. Fujio was the pen name of beloved manga artist Hiroshi Fujimoto. Originally, however, the name Fujiko Fujio (no middle initial) was attributed to the manga-drawing duo Hiroshi and his lifelong friend, Motoo Abiko. The two met in elementary school where they would often draw pictures together and hide them out of embarrassment from classmates. They were greatly influenced by Osamu Tezuka and the US cartoons of Hanna-Barbera.
In high school, the duo—known as Fujiko Fujio—made their publishing debut. They created many works together that still enjoy mainstream and niche popularity today. As they diverged in creative visions and intended audiences, they would often adopt the Fujiko Fujio name with differing initials: F. for Hiroshi Fujimoto and A. for Motoo Abiko. It wasn’t until the late 80s that the two split over creative differences, yet still remained lifelong friends until Fujimoto’s death in 1996.
There are plenty of places to have fun and explore at this unique museum. Once you’ve finished looking at the private displays—including Fujiko F. Fujio’s own study desk where he created his library of work—visit the second floor where children can play and experience the characters of the world of Doraemon. Higher up, on the third floor, play at the rooftop playground or grab a bite to eat at the chic museum café. Don’t forget to stop by the museum gift shop where original goods are sold, including those you can only buy here!
