Educating With Art
Our company motto reflects our commitment to creating products that are wholesome, informative and fun. We love manga, and believe it can — and should — be used for more than just great entertainment. Illustrations simplify things that might be otherwise very difficult to understand.
More importantly, manga makes learning more fun! No one understands this better than a manga fan, and that's why we want to make books that teach you about the things you want to learn!
Welcoming the World
Our offices are in Kawaguchi City, which is just north of Tokyo, in a sleek building that once served as a traditional Japanese restaurant. While the pots and pans have been replaced by desks and computers, we have preserved the private tatami dining rooms.
Today, those rooms host workshops and provide overnight accommodations for visiting scholars and overseas guests.
We get e-mails every day asking about enrollment in Manga University, but we simply call ourselves a university to emphasize the educational nature of our products and services.
We do, however, regularly hold drawing workshops, language lessons, cooking demonstrations and other group activities. And our homestay program offers an excellent opportunity to experience Japan firsthand.
