The Kyoto International Manga Museum used to be a Primary School and was converted to the incredible museum we now know and love. There is an exhibition area, a large library area, a communal sitting area and a restaurant. There is even a wide green field where you can sit outside and catch some rays.
There are tons of books you can borrow from their library, as well as from the archived collection!
You can sit down and enjoy some of their mangas. You probably won't even notice the hours pass by as you delve into the world of your favorite character.
Do you recognize any of these characters?

I love travelling and discovering new cuisines. Japan has a panoply of local dishes to try. I also love yoga, coffee, reading, and cycling.
