FEATURE: Suginami Animation Museum Photo Report Part 1

The place where you can learn everything about anime

Suginami Animatin Museum in Suginami, Tokyo, was opened in March 2005. They have various displays to introduce the history of anime/Japanese animation, the production process (including voice dubbing and digital workshop), and their own anime theater and library. The museum is run by The Association of Japanese Animation (AJA). They kindly permitted me to take some photos of the inside of the museum for the CR News readers. Enjoy the photo tour!
