It's nearly the end of October.

Time really fries... How are you these days? I am Sakata from workshop.


What do you think about when you hear the word autumn? Food, sport, art and reading... I think about fashion! I really enjoy myself being different from usual so I am trying to do autumn fashion.


This autumn is a special for Manga Museum too. We are having 10th anniversary this year on the Nov. 25th. The events have been planned so we are holding a workshop "Be a Mamyu's stylist!" which started from Oct. 1st to cerebrate his birthday with special fashion.

At this workshop you can draw your original Mamyu with the fashion. Let me share the pieces of participants!!

Musical autumn!! Mamyu became an orchestra conductor! Looking at the detail you can see piano keyboard on his pen.

Hello to the MM blog readers.

I am Kasumin from MM portrait team.

Recently the weather suddenly dropped cold so I'm having difficult time choosing my jacket to go out.

I usually don't go out so much so when I come to museum it's always hard for me to predict how the weather will be on the day.

When I think it should be fine to wear a shirt only then I'm freezed on my way home. So I wear a jacket thinking how cold it was the last time, nobody else are wearing jackets on the train.


what do I do?!


I'm sure it's not just me having issues with this weather. To go out with family, trees haven't changed the color yet but it's little bit too cold to go for leisure. It can rain suddenly even if you were dating.


Manga museum is a perfect destination for such time.


You don't have to walk around wearing high heels, you can read outside at the lawn. If your children get bored of reading, we have workshop and Kamishibai you can participate.

Sunshine will keep you warm while you getting your portrait done where you can look out the window. The portrait corner is less busy compare to summer so you can relax!


November is our anniversary month so please visit us for your memorable visit!

Hello. I am Emiko Higashino.


Morning and night time have become a little chillier these days. I am quite sensitive in the cold weather so I started drinking special alcohol drink to keep my body warm.

Our portrait corner had such a busy summer and now it’s calmer as busy period is over.

We do copic maintenance every year around this time. Copic is a high quality oil based markers which is used by many famous manga artists. We usually use refilling ink when the ink is gone so we did a big maintenance on the museum closure day.

We refilled ink and wiped outside pen and inside the pen cap. There were 300 pens to clean and it took us 4 hours. Now the pens look new and making us even happier to draw! I feel like I’m drawing better than usual…!


Please come and see how we are drawing portraits!

Japan expo 2016 in Paris report

Hello! I am Kasumin from portrait section. How did you enjoy itsu's reports of Japan Expo 2016? I will be writing about story behind Expo today!


I saw many things at the Japan Expo. So many cosplayers, duealists who are enjoying the battles. The most memorable person was a guy wearing popular girls' guardian's t-shirt who was very tough looking with tattoo but smiling so kindly. It made me smile too!


f:id:kyotomm:20160821124249j:image


French staff I met at the Kyoto booth were all friendly and nice. They were my age and some of them were even illustrators like we are! That was such unforgettable meeting for us! I wish I was better at English...! The day they took us out became definitely a great memory of our journey. So, thank you so much!


f:id:kyotomm:20160821124248j:image


This is another time, we were in the crowd at the subway between stations. We had no idea what was happening as we don't understand French so we thought maybe someone famous or cute animal is there. So we were stepping forward slowly with some excitement. The result was just an escalator not in operation so people were stuck there. It was so many people and we nearly had our belongings stolen there.


f:id:kyotomm:20160821124247j:image


Did you know that supermarkets are closed on Sunday? We've never known about it so we were really starved looking for anywhere to get food. We were so tired, we sat on the bench then we nearly had pick pocketed again.

We aren't very careful people anyway so it was difficult for us to be aware of unusual situations.


f:id:kyotomm:20160821124246j:image


So many things happened but it was such an opportunity to experience making portraits overseas! Thank you so much for the presents and doing cosplay, wearing kimono. I saw some people enjoying pokemon which wasn't out yet in Japan at the time. Made me feel closer even it's far from where I live. Manga really can bring connection between people over the boundaries.

Please visit Japan Expo if you ever have chance!


f:id:kyotomm:20160821124245j:image


So, these were the Japan Expo 2016 reports from me and itsu. I hope there will be more opportunities that we can report! Please visit us for more stories at the museum! See you there!

Hi! This is itsu again! I will share my experience of meeting visitors at the Japan Expo today!

This visitor came to manga museum and made a portrait 6 years ago! How crazy!!


f:id:kyotomm:20160815173806j:image


We were taking reservations as we do at the museum in order of visitors' arrival. It was more visitors than we expected, there was a day became occupied within 10 minutes...!

So, we made a lottery for the final person to be drawn on the last day. We drew the lottery in front of many people and I actually was most nervous at the time.


Lucky yoann and Jérôme were chosen!

We were glad that they looked happy!

With the lottery ticket in the photo.


f:id:kyotomm:20160815173805j:image


Me and Mr. yoann!


f:id:kyotomm:20160815173822j:image


The 4 days we spent in Paris went so quick. We had so much fun there.


So, how was my Japan Expo report?

Museum's portrait has been 10 years since museum's opening. As I heard there weren't very much customers in the beginning even were are busy having many international customers nowadays.

We hope Japan Expo visitors became interested in Kyoto and manga museum! Please come and visit us at the portrait corner once!


Kasumin will be writing a report tomorrow. Don't miss it!
