It is a small but informative memorial hall for famous anime Kitaro. Fans of him must go! Characters are walking along the main street and photo shooting are welcomed. Children and adults are having fun with them.

Full description of the artist and his characters. When you visit, Kitaro of human scale may come and show you the route. They offer special discount tickets for tourist.

I grow up reading & watching Kitaro's stories. Mizuki Shigeru memorial hall made me realize that I didn't know much about him after all. Don't under estimate the experience of a soldier in the nasty war.
