Suginami Animation Museum



This is a museum where you can experience the past and present of animation with fun. You can find programs everywhere, programs that are not only for seeing but more for participating in the activities with the exhibitions. The museum has a section that introduces, using the latest digital technology, the history and the state of the art of Japanese digital anime. It also has an anime theater that shows a wide variety of anime from the historical works to the popular ones. The exhibition called ”Anime-ga-dekiru-made” (the processes to complete anime) features reproductions of the desks of an animation director, a creative director, and an art director. It also explains the processes of creating anime in an easy-to-understand manner in videos. Also, workshops, where you can create a work of flip anime, are held in an experience zone. It is located a twenty-minute walk from the JR Ogikubo Station or a two-minute walk from the Ogikubo Keisatusho-mae (Ogikubo Police Station) bus stop if you take a Kanto bus for five minutes from the North Exit of the Ogikubo Station.
