Countdown to Fujiko F. Fujio’s Doraemon Museum begins

A countdown signboard was set up at a railway station in Kawasaki, Kanagawa Prefecture, in early September to begin counting down the days until the opening a year from now of a museum dedicated to the creator of the "Doraemon" and "Perman" cartoon series, which have proved popular with children in Japan and abroad.

The signboard was installed on a monument featuring the "Wherever Door" — a Doraemon tool that can take you anywhere you want — at JR Noborito Station near the museum site.

The Fujiko F. Fujio Museum is scheduled to open in September 2011 and feature around 50,000 of his original drawings, along with a desk and other items he used up until his death in 1996.
