Immortalised in the universe of characters that had spawned fads, die-hards and unique sub-cultures, these adored characters reflect the kaleidoscopic reality of Japan’s society and continue to capture imagination of the world. The exhibition highlights their influence on Japanese society, popular culture and historical development through the decades.
