Oizumi Anime Gate 大泉アニメゲート

1-28,Higashioizumi,Nerima city,Tokyo

The gateway to the epicenter of the anime industry

Oizumi Anime Gate opened in April 2015 on the pedestrian deck outside the north exit of Oizumi Gakuen Station. It's a symbol of Nerima, a city that prides itself on being "Anime City Ichiban" (the number one city for anime). The gate features life-sized bronze statues of popular anime characters originating in Nerima, such as Astro Boy from the series of the same name, Joe Yabuki from "Ashita no Joe", Tetsuro Hoshino and Maetel from Galaxy Express 999, and Lum from Urusei Yatsura. The site also offers a chronology of Nerima's anime industry, as well as a "Graphic Wall", where visitors can experience and enjoy Nerima animation.
