Daijiro Morohoshi (1946 -) is a Japanese manga artist who is well-known for science fiction themed comic strips and pieces based on folklore. A special event at the Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art commemorates 50 years since Morohashi's debut, and looks at his wide-ranging works along with pieces that are said to have inspired his art.

Around 350 items in total will be on display at the event, including original drawings and other artworks and folk materials closely aligned with his manga style.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen.

The Hokkaido Museum of Modern Art is located approximately four minutes on foot from Nishijuhatchome Station, which is served by the Tozai subway line.

I'm an expat who has lived abroad for almost a decade, including 7 years in Japan. I've also visited 44 of 47 prefectures and hope to get to the last three someday! I'm particularly fond of exploring off the beaten path destinations, gardens, and tea houses, and have a real interest in Japan's growing vegan scene.

I'm all for the end of Go To and I am sure Hokkaido residents are relieved they are now excluded. But it must be hard for so many, including places like this who will inevitably be effected by the lack of tourists.

It's amazing how manga is popular in Japan and even taken as literature. Also I knew frm my friend there is a gradation by gender as she studies and teaches manga for girls in the University!
