After having doubt whether the manga museum at Kyoto station was open or not, we decided not to waste any time and head straight to the International Manga Museum. This place is huge and is piled high with every manga book you can imagine, not much else to see or do though. If you get the choice chose the day you visit carefully and there may be a 'special event' or a manga artist in residence. For all you 'die-hard' manga fans it's a must visit, if like us you have moderate interest and are curious, then may be not worthy of a visit as it's just like an over sized library. If you feel the need to go then 1-2 hours is plenty,
Access is from Karasuma-Oike station, followed by a short 3-4 minute walk, entrance fee 800 yen.
