Hailed as the country's first of its kind, the Contemporary Manga Library houses an astounding collection. With over 180,000 items, ranging from weekly magazines and regular volumes to reviews and even animation cells, this is a manga-enthusiast's dream.
Be aware that there are a few restrictions in place. For example, items with a publication date older than 1970 may not be viewed unless you're a registered member. Information in English is very limited. However, for the fervent fan, this is another great addition to a manga-focused tour of Tokyo.
Visitors can find and request a specific comic from a list arranged in Japanese syllable order. The list is only available in Japanese.
General admission: 330 yen
