Ishinomori Mangattan Museum

Museum in Ishinomaki

This popular manga museum's other-worldly 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.
