2012 Picture of the Week (35/52) – Takadanobaba Murals

Takadanobaba in Shinjuku Ward is a well known place for a few reasons. It’s near the famous Waseda University, it has very good ramen, and is known as the birthplace of Astro Boy (Tetsuwan Atom). Across the street from the Waseda exit are two murals dedicated to Osamu Tezuka’s manga. This time, I’m giving you two pictures!

This mural depicts many of Tezuka’s manga.

There’s Astro Boy’s mural!

  1. I like the first mural which has so much going on that it would be fun to pick out all the characters that I know🙂
