The press conference for "Kyoto Mugiwara Douchuki ~Mou Hitotsu no Wa no Kuni (Kyoto Mugiwara Travel Journal ~Another Wano Country~), the upcoming sightseeing event to commemorate the 20th anniversary of Eiichiro Oda's internationally popular manga series One Piece, was held at the Kyoto City Office yesterday. In addition to the details of the experience-type event fully supported by Kyoto-city, a main visual for the event newly drawn by Oda was also revealed.
This is the 18th plan for the One Piece manga's 20th anniversary project that has a total of 20 plans. For 16 days from October 7 to 22, tourists can join a mission to find the members of The Straw Hat Pirates who are hiding in the famous places in the city, while doing sightseeing to learn and feel its history and culture. If you collect the characters' message stamps at each checking points, you can get a special souvenir from the city.
And during the event period, Daikaku-ji, a Shingon Buddhist temple in Ukyo-ku build in 876, will hold
a story art exhibition "One Piece Art Nue - The Flower of the Beast, Princess, and Oath." It will feature
collaboration works between the One Piece manga and traditional Japanese arts. And the biggest
One Piece art in the history of the franchise will be also displayed in the temple's garden.
