“Finally meet my childhood fave character”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

Visited Fujiko F Fujio Museum in April 2013. The 1000yen ticket should be purchased in advance (1month-2weeks before) via loppi machine in Lawson convenient store. There are 4 option of visiting time: 10, 12, 14 and 16.00.
There is no car park in the museum so most convenient way is to take train to Noborito station and take the 100yen bus to the museum. The bus is cute and convenient. We didn't take the bus and took off from Mukagaoka yuen station on foot. It's about 1km tiring distance to the museum so better take the bus ;)
The museum is all about Fujiko F Fujio life and masterpieces but there are some Doraemon & friends figurines to take photos with. There is outdoor small park to take picture and have a walk. There is also theater where you can watch documentary movie about Fujiko Fujio's life.
The cafe and food is awesome but quite pricey. You are not allowed to bring outside foods to the museum.

“ドラえもん、かわいい!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

I grew up with Doraemon. I even memorize the lyric of Doraemon song!!! So, it was like a dream come true when I finally come to Fujiko F Fujio museum. There were exhibitions with detail explanations (in your language choice by using the device given to you by the staff), movie screening, reading area, children play area, souvenir shop and small park on the rooftop where you could freely take photos with the characters There is also a cafe with cute and interesting food presentation

“childhood memories come alive :)”
Reviewed April 27, 2013

It was like a dream come true.

I literally grew up with them, even until now (with a 5 yos daughter) I still manage to read them or watch them once in a while.

So when I stepped my foot inside the museum I was overwhelmed with happiness :)

There were exhibitions with detail explanations (in english too), movie screening, reading area, children play area, outdoor area (one of the areas where you could freely take photos), souvenir shop and the cafe with the most interesting food presentation :)

As for the ticket, like Ghibli, it is exclusively available in Lawson (using Loppi machine). You have to buy ticket in advance and there are time slots for the entrance.

Going there is easy, just take a train to Noborito station and then take the shuttle bus from the station straight to the museum.

“Loveee the Doraemon Cafe!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

If you are a big fan of fujiko fumio comic books such as Doraemon, Pa-man or Mojacko, then this museum will bring back all those old happy memories. Here are some tips:
1. First, you need to purchase the tickets from Lawson store in advance (1000yen for adult). This museum is packed in the weekends so there will be allocated times to go in.
2. Get there early, from Noborito station there will be a bus to take you to the museum (200yen) otherwise it's about 15 minutes 'japanese walk'.
3. With your tickets, you can get a listening audio guide in Japanese or English. You need the audio device to enjoy the exhibition, there's no written explanation.
4. They will also give you two tiny theatre tickets to watch doraemon movies. The short movies shows every 20 minutes on the 2nd floor.
5. Although its tempting to go see the exhibition straight away, but if its a crowded day, I'd highly recommend to go UP to the Doraemon Cafe on 3rd Floor and GET Seating Numbers. You don't have to wait in the cafe for your spot as you can check the queue online and they will call you by phone. The Doraemon Cafe was the highlight of our trip. They have so many doraemon characters food and its sooooo cute! They even have the 'memory bread' (if you know what i mean?!) We did not get the seating numbers in advance and ended up waiting for 2 hours!
6. Enjoy going around the exhibition room with lots of original cartoon drawn by Fujiko Fumio.
7. Then off to the theatre on the second floor, while waiting you can go get some doraemon souvenirs from the Giant Doraemon Gatcha or a photo sticker booth only for 400 yen.
8. Lastly, after a break/ lunch at the cafe, spend some time at the rooftop for some photos, and visit the gift shop, they have lots of cute character ceramics and even manga cookies!
All in all it was a good trip, if you love doraemon, go for it!

“FABULOUS!!!!”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Doraemon, a character whom I grow up with. Was really excited to know about the existence of this museum! Getting ticket for this is hard as it requires pre-purchase and you had to buy through the Lawson ticket machine two months beforehand. I'm really lucky & blessed that I manage to find out about this just days before the sales of tickets during the period I'm going, and I managed to get my friend in Japan to help me with buy.

Going there from Tokyo is not difficult. Prob about 30min away. Changed to the bus at Noborito Station. The shuttle bus is absolutely cute! Pink interior with faces of Doraemon & other characters created by the same author. Cost 100yen per way, Suica card can be used.

Upon reaching, we were asked to get in line to go in. There's an english brochure explaining what's inside and floor guide. Upon entering, you can get an english audio guide for free. There were nice display of the original artwork.

At the top level, there's an activity room where you can take neoprints and play gacha gacha. The rooftop had different sculptures of doraemon where you can take picture with. There's a cafe too. My advise is go to the cafe and get a queue number first. I explored everything, went to get queue number before going out to the rooftop to take pictures. By then, I had to wait for about 2hours to get in. So once you completed the exhibits, go straight up to the cafe, take the queue number then join in the fun of other activities.

The cafe was absolutely the best! Everything is designed in relation with doraemon or his friends. It was too cute. Taste was alright too! It is definitely a must go for the cafe. There's a takeaway counter serving other food too. Bought a doraemon dorayaki to munch.

After that, I decided to walk back to the nearest station. Along the way, you get to see sculptures of doraemon and other characters. Gotta keep your eyes open for it. There's a brochure available at the museum (elsewhere might hv too since i saw people taking it to the museum) where it indicates where the sculptures are located at. It is definitely fun to walk along, explore the typical japan neighborhood & look out for the characters.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience! Well worth!
