CHIBI MARUKO CHAN LAND
"Chibi Maruko-chan Land” is the only permanent museum exhibition of “Chibi Maruko-chan" in Japan. It is situated in Shimizu Ward, Shizuoka City, where the original author, Sakura Momoko, was born.
Here, you can experience the daily life of Maruko's anime world, and in the new area that was allocated in July 2020, you can also experience the jolly opening movie. The projection mapping that can only be seen here is also spectacular, and can be enjoyed by both adults and children alike.

Sightseeing Spot in This Area
In 2003, the city of Shizuoka merged with Shimizu and other areas in Shizuoka Prefecture, forming the Shimizu Ward. It is known as the home of J.League football team Shimizu S-Pulse. Miho no Matsubara (as pictured), designated one of the New Three Views of Japan as well as a Place of Scenic Beauty, has attracted flocks of sightseers since the Heian Period. From Suruga Bay, you can enjoy the stunning view of Mount Fuji and the Izu Peninsula, which once inspired the ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige in creating his artwork. Don't forget to visit the "Kashi no Ichi" fish market in Shimizu Port, where you can enjoy fresh and delicious seafood at a reasonable price.
