The Doraemon Exhibition Kyoto 2021

Doraemon Exhibition will be Held in Kyoto in 2021 Summer

The special exhibition of Doraemon, one of the most beloved Japanese anime characters, will be held in Kyoto in 2021 summer. The Doraemon Exhibition 2021 will be one of the hottest events this summer!

DORAEMON is one of the most beloved and long-running Japanese animations, which was created by the legendary manga artist, Fujiko F. Fujio. Doraemon’s debut on a cartoon was back in 1969, then the TV animation series started broadcasting in 1973 and numbers of films were also made in the past 50 years.

In the past 50 years, people in Japan have grown up watching Doraemon on TV, cartoon or cinema since they were kids, and Doraemon and his friends are adored by the whole nations (and the TV animation still broadcast today).

Not only in Japan, but Doraemon also has a lot of fans outside of the country. Over 100 million copies of its manga series have been sold worldwide, and animation series has been broadcasting in over 30 countries. The main characters such as Doraemon and Nobita are one of the most recognizable anime characters in the world today.

The Doraemon Exhibition has been touring in Japan since 2017 including Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya, and welcomed a large number of Doraemon fans from Japan and overseas.

In 2021 summer, The Doraemon Exhibition will be back and this time it’s taking place at the ancient capital of the country, Kyoto. THE Doraemon Exhibition 2021 (THE ドラえもん展 KYOTO 2021) will be held at Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art from 10 July to 5 September 2021.
