Ishinomori Mangattan Museum

Museum in Ishinomaki

This popular manga museum's otherworldly spaceship structure survived the tsunami largely intact, while the collection has since been restored and rejuvenated. The work of influential manga-ka (cartoonist) and local hero Shōtarō Ishinomori, most famous for creating the Cyborg 009 and Kamen Rider series, is the star attraction. It's a 20-minute walk from the train station.
