The Nurie Museum is dedicated to nurie, coloring, books and the master of the art form, Kiichi Tsutaya. The museum has about 200 coloring books on display, mostly from the 1940s to 1960s, from both inside and outside of Japan. By examining these retro drawings, you can see many of the design elements that are reflected in the "kawaii" style of the anime and manga of today.
In addition to looking at the displays, you can try your hand at nurie drawing, and the gift shop has a lovely selection coloring books and pens. The museum is located in the Arakawa area in northern Tokyo and is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
