Kahoku-cho in Kami City, kochi Prefecture is the land of Takashi Yanase, creator of Anpanman. Located in this tiniest of towns, the Anpanman Museum is a spiritual home for those who love Anpanman. There is no difficult art here, and there are no suggested paths. Wander around however you like and see if you can find Anpanman and his friends hiding here and there throughout the museum.

Enroute from Iya Valley to Kochi, we stopped by Kami to visit Anpanman...well worth the visit, especially if you kids love Anpanman. Really, what there not to like. You will get to learn about his creator, see many cute pictures, toys, statues etc etc. Would echo an earier review....certainly 'cuteness overload'!
