Tokiwa-so:The homes of legendary cartoonists

Tokowa-so is an apartment with legendary manga artists.
It was dismantled in 1982 due to ageing.
But the locals wished to rebuild the building.
After a long time, that dream finally came true this year.
It is a manga museum that faithfully reproduces Tokiwa-so.
Surprisingly, the cost is financed by donations.

All the manga artists in Japan respect Tokiwa-so.
That’s because this apartment is the source of Japanese comics.

Small Gallery and workshop in Yanaka

Small Gallery and workshop in Yanaka

I went to a workshop in Yanaka to create a T-shirt.
I used the silk screen there.

OTAKU create T-shirts here before the comic market.
They love their originals.

There is also a small gallery here.
There is also a work of a famous writer.

Unfortunately, the shop (HOW HOUSE) will be closed until next June.
It is for renovations.
