If you are now in Japan you might be interested in visiting the Naruto exhibition which is currently being held at the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills. The exhibition is opened until June 28th. Not only you will find Naruto and his friends at the exhibition but also in the streets of Roppongi which have been decorated for the occasion. You can collect the characters of the popular TV show that you find in the streets and participate in a “Stamp Rally” contest. You can find more info at the official website.
Google recently scanned and photographed almost all the Osamu Tezuka Manga Museum in Takarazuka. You can take a look at the scanned high-resolution images, videos and an explanation of the life and artistic evolution of Osamu Tezuka at the Google Cultural Institute. You can also visit the museum virtually like in Google Street View.
It´s always good to remember that all masters started from zero. This is how Tezuka drew as a child:

Last Friday we went to Harajuku, when we were arriving I saw in a map at the station that there was an Evangelion store in an alley parallel to Takeshita-dori (Exact location in Google Maps). We had no idea there was an Evangelion store in Harajuku so we decided to check it out. In the first floor almost all the items were boring t-shirt but in the second floor there was a lot of original and interesting merchandising. If you are an Evangelion fan the visit is a must!
