"The Cartoon Exhibition: Nuclear Power Plant and Alternative Energy"
THE JAPAN NEWSPAPER MUSEUM
By TOMOHIRO OSAKI
The Tokyo Shimbun and the Japan Newspaper Museum present satirical and humorous cartoons on topical issues by 34 of the nation's leading manga artists. Unsurprisingly, Japan's ongoing struggle with the nuclear power situation and its fledgling pursuit of alternative power resources is covered, along with other topics that surround last year's March 11 disasters.
Some of the illustrations will also be reproduced on gigantic two-meter-high banners to give visitors a better visual understanding of the messages they portray; April 28-July 1.
