Step into the surreal world of Japanese manga at The Mizuki Shigeru Road, a playful street dedicated to the life and work of Shigeru Mizuki, one of the country's greatest manga artists. An 800 m (2,624 ft) arcade decorated with 153 bronze statues of the artist's fantasy creations allow you to weave your way around many quirky shops selling sweets and souvenirs. At night, the statues create an eerie sight, lit up to recreate the spirit world.
