World’s First Voice Acting Museum Opens in Tokyo
Chalk up another reason to visit the vibrant mecca of Tokyo. The Seiyuu Museum is the world’s first voice acting museum (seiyū being voice actor). Inside is a glut of scripts from over 50 years of Japanese animated history, including Mobile Suit Gundam, One Piece and Chibi Maruko-chan. Some even feature annotations from voice actors with instructions on how to deliver a line. And that’s just scratching the surface. The museum, which is affiliated with the voice acting studio 81 Produce - who are currently celebrating their 35th anniversary - is located in Sasazuka, Tokyo, west of Harajuku.
