In Tokyo, Mangaka Fujiko Fujio A’s Towering Exhibition
Motoo Abiko (known as Fujiko Fujio Atsushi), is a living legend of manga in Japan. Now aged 84, the artist still loves events that retrace his career. Which is good news, because an exhibition at the Roppongi Hills observatory in Tokyo (on the 51st floor of Mori Tower) is now honouring this mangaka. The place will be transformed into a ‘fun photo spot’ and will plunge the visitor into a strange world. Fujiko Fujio A is particularly known for his work on the manga series Doraemon, as part of the duo Fujiko Fujio with Hiroshi Fujimoto.
