Shotaro Ishinomori Furusato Memorial Hall

Valuable manuscripts and materials are exhibited in the hall and you can trace the artist's footprints. There is still a birthplace of Ishinomori in 1 minute walk from the building. Room and desk are still at that time. You can enter inside while entering free. Space that a boy posted by Shotaro Ishinomori can be said as the origin of author's life. From the window of the room that is never wide, you may be able to experience the original landscape he was watching at the time and the world of inflating imagination. Also, "Tezuka · Ishinomori Heroes exhibition" is currently being held. Tezuka Osamu, Shotaro Ishinomori 's valuable raw masterpiece, the relationship between the two affected, and Astro Boy drawn by Ishinomori are also exhibited. Ishinomori who produced numerous manga works may have changed from the scenery at the time, although the environment that the high school student had spent has changed, but still it can feel the same nature and climate. Please go and experience the hometown where you spent a boyhood while nurturing artistic nature.
