A special exhibition taking place at the Fukushima Prefectural Museum of Art centers around Doraemon, the iconic manga and anime series character created by Fujiko F. Fujio back in 1970. The event involves the work of 28 creative minds who were asked to come up with their own artworks incorporating Doraemon, including the likes of Takashi Murakami, Shishi Yamazaki, and Suito Nakatsuka to name just a few.
Admission to the event is priced at 1400 yen, and no advance reservations are required.
