Animage and Ghibli Exhibition

9:30am – 6:00pm
¥1,300 – ¥1,500

Animage is an influential anime magazine that began publication in 1978. One of the early editors was anime producer Toshio Suzuki, who collaborated with Ghibli director Hayao Miyazaki on articles and manga for the magazine.

The subtitle of the exhibition is “The single magazine from which Ghibli began”, so a major part of the exhibition looks at this connection between Animage and Studio Ghibli.

The adult admission price is ¥1,300 on weekdays, and ¥1,500 on weekends. There is also an early-bird “pair ticket” for ¥2,000 which admits two people—or one person twice.

Tickets are on sale through Lawson Ticket, Ticket Pia, e+, Seven Ticket, and ARTNE Ticket.

After leaving Fukuoka, the exhibition will move to Hiroshima from July 16th until September 4th, then Fukushima from September 17th to December 11th.

To prevent the spread of COVID-19, many events have been canceled. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
