A museum dedicated to the creator of the popular “Doraemon” cartoon series opened Saturday in Kawasaki, south of Tokyo, marking the fictional birthday of the titular cat-shaped robot.

The three-story Fujiko F. Fujio Museum features around 50,000 of his original drawings, of which about 130 are exhibited, along with a desk and other items the cartoonist used until his death in 1996, the facility’s operator said.
