Museum

Kawasaki City Fujiko·F·Fujio Museum

Kawasaki City Fujiko·F·Fujio Museum

Go back to the excitement of your childhood with "Doraemon" and "Perman"!

It all started 12 years ago. "I want to give something back to the fans who have always supported my husband." This desire of the wife of manga author Fujiko·F·Fujio was finally realized, after 12 years, in September 2011, when this museum finally opened its doors.
According to the museum's PR Manager, Ms. Iijima, the museum houses more than 50,000 drawings. As you wander through the two exhibition rooms, in which approximately 130 of these drawings are on display, you will surely feel nostalgia for your childhood days spent reading "Doraemon" and "Perman." That this museum is visited by people of all ages, couples, and families spanning three generations is a testament to it bearing the name Fujiko·F·Fujio. Based in one of his principle ideals, "always draw giving consideration to my readers being children," a large number of materials have been gathered to recreate his own "work room," and the "Fujio On Sunday" corner allows the family and private life of this "manga author of the people" to be experienced. The gentle soul revealed here is said to have moved some visitors to tears.

Kawasaki Municipal Science Museum

Kawasaki Municipal Science Museum

A science museum with a state-of-the-art planetarium, that allows you to enjoy starry skies and an abundant natural environment

The brown-domed building that you can see past the trees of the lush Ikuta Park is the newly renovated Kawasaki Municipal Science Museum that was reopened on April 28, 2012. A variety of ingenious measures have been implemented to allow visitors to enjoy and become familiar with science under the themes of nature, astronomy, and science.
The planetarium utilizes the MEGASTAR-III FUSION planet projector that was developed for Kawasaki City, providing the world's top-class experience of viewing beautiful starry skies. From the Astro Terrace on the roof, you can observe the surface of the sun, as well as stars and planets that are visible even during the daytime, through a computer-controlled telescope.
At the entrance to the exhibit room stands an 8-meter geological stratum tower that shrinks the layers of earth in Ikuta Park to one-fifth its actual size. Also in the exhibit room you'll find insects, plants, and many other specimens that will introduce you to Kawasaki's natural environment under the themes of "hills," "towns," "Tama River," and "Ikuta Park."
In addition, Ikuta Park tours, nature workshops, science experiment classes, and a variety of other lectures and classes are available to allow you to experience nature and science yourself. We cordially invite you to come enjoy the new Science Museum to the fullest.
