Kamen Rider exhibition Kadokawa EJ Anime Museum

Information for the Kamen Rider 50th anniversary exhibition at the EJ Anime Museum in Kadokawa Culture Museum in the spring of 2024. As of May 10th 2024, they have not yet released information for the next exhibition, but there will be a Yowamushi Pedal exhibition from August 10th 2024. I can only assume that they will have another exhibition before that.

A special Kamen Rider exhibition will start on Saturday March 30th 2024 at Kadokawa Culture Museum in Tokorozawa Sakura Town. This exhibition celebrates 50 years of the popular Japanese hero ‘Kamen Rider’. The exhibition is at the EJ Anime Museum on the 3rd floor of the Kadokawa Culture Museum*. Tickets are already on sale; see the information section at the bottom of the post for links.

*Kadokawa Culture Museum is also called Kadcul for short or Kadokawa Musashino Museum.

Kamen Rider 50 years Exhibition

Kamen Rider began broadcasting on television in 1971. The Kamen Rider hero was a departure from previous images of heroes shown on Japanese TV and quickly gained a large fan base. His character appeals not only to children, but also to adults. Themes of Kamen Rider address sadness and loneliness and showcase the humanity of the eponymous figure. As a result, he is a hero that many could and do get behind.

The exhibition introduces the appeal of Kamen Rider, which has prevailed through three eras: Showa, Heisei, and Reiwa. This is an unique opportunity to examine “who is Kamen Rider” through a variety of materials and insights from the TV series. In addition, you can pick up some original goods at the exhibition.

      I might try and go to it with the kids. Still a bit nervous bringing them to indoor locations, but we’ve got to start “living” with Covid at some point!
