To effeminate/devout manga nerds (like us), the Osamu Tezuka Museum is our Mecca, or Graceland if you prefer. The small but delightful museum is located in Takarazuka City (west of Kobe), which is not only Tezuka's hometown but the location of the famous Takarazuka Revue Academy and Grand Theater.
Evan and I visited the museum in 2003 when I was living in Osaka, and I got back there again later that year to attend a few Takarazuka performances (more on that in a later post, perhaps). For your pleasure, Comics212 blogger Christopher Butcher has just posted dozens of his Tezuka Museum photos, taken during his recent trip to Japan . Check out the happiest place on earth!
In addition, Chris also posted photos of Tezuka's own HOW TO DRAW tips, which can be found set into the floor of the museum.
Thanks to Chris for sharing these fantastic pictures!
