Manga, Anime and Game Exhibition / ニッポンのマンガ・アニメ・ゲーム展

A lot of people who visit Japan or study Japanese are very interested in Japanese manga, anime and game cultures. (Lexis Japan staff feels many students at our college know about these much more than us!) For those people, this will be good information!


The Japanese manga, anime and game exhibition is being held until the 23rd of November at Hyogo Prefectural Museum of Art in Iwaya, which is only 6 minutes by train from Motomachi where Lexis Japan is. (Our student apartment is also located in Iwaya.) There are 7 different sections and you can learn the history of manga/anime/games in Japan, how they relate to one another, and how they were influenced by the evolution of technology. You can also play many games from really old ones to new ones!


We visited here as our afternoon activity yesterday. Unfortunately, we don’t have any photos as photos and movies are not allowed in the exhibition area. However, here are some photos around the entrance!


Everyone looked like they were having fun especially at the game playing area! There was a game called “Dance Dance Revolution”, which you can play to see how good you are at dancing. We knew Erik was an excellent dancer!!! Niko played “Taiko no Tatsujin”, a drum game, which is really famous and popular in Japan. He played very well even with a song he doesn’t know!!!
