Earlier this year, Mori Art Center Gallery had a new exhibition that made all Sakura, Tomoyo and Kero fans really happy! Welcome to Card Captor Sakura The Enchanted Art Museum Exhibition in Roppongi, Tokyo.
This exhibition takes a close look at the Card Captor Sakura universe. From the first generation of mangas to the heaps of CCS merchandising all over the world, it’s a journey through the 22 years of the loved CLAMP series.
When you enter, you’re first greeted by a little animation of Kero (Japanese only). Photos were allowed through some parts of the exhibition but video was strictly forbidden, sorry!
The giant books (like The Clow up there) hold all kinds of information about Card Captor Sakura. From a detailed “family tree” of the characters to fun facts and an interview with the Guinness Record Holder for more Card Captor Sakura merchandising owner, both in Japanese and English! It’s a nice introduction/reminder of why this series is so wildly popular.
Probably everyone’s favorite part of the Card Captor Sakura The Enchanted Art Museum Exhibition is the costumes room, in which you can see real life Card Captor Sakura costumes! Just like Tomoyo imagined them.
Card Captor Sakura The Enchanted Art Museum Exhibition is fairly English-friendly.
The exhibition has a some interactive activities where you can immerse yourself in the Card Captor Sakura world. I contributed to the flower wall by sticking some cherry blossoms, saw through Tomoyo’s eyes on the “Tomoyo Finder” spots…
… and of course took a photo with the giant Kero~chan!! There are Sakura cosplay items available for picture-taking but they take them away earlier than closing time so I could not try them on! Try to make it early if you’re interested in cosplaying!
The picture-forbidden part of the exhibit had original pages of the Card Captor Sakura original manga plus the new Card Captor Sakura Clear Card arc. I love seeing original art so I enjoyed it a lot! No one can deny Card Captor Sakura is full of gorgeous details and masterfully done.
You can enjoy the original edition of the mangas in one of the exhibition’s room. Ah, such a happy trip to the past! I remember when I first read the manga and then watched the anime, I loved the heart warming story and the beautiful (inside and outside) characters.
Right before the exit of the exhibition, an impressive collection of the Card Captor Sakura cards plus a very special one that you get to bring home in the form of a bookmark! I love that they always give you a little memento after these events!!
