Special event: The Kyoto “Straw Hat” Travelogue - Another WANOKUNI
A grand adventure that will take you all over Kyoto in search of the “Straw Hat” Pirates!!
Saturday, July 22, 2017 marks the 20th year anniversary of the serialization of ONE PIECE. In gratitude of 20 years of ONE PIECE, a special anniversary campaign is currently underway. As part of this, the ONE PIECE 20th x KYOTO - Kyoto “Straw Hat” Travelogue, Another WANOKUNI event will be held in Kyoto.
Kyoto can be said to be a real-life version of the WANOKUNI, a nation that appears in ONE PIECE. Also, Kyoto’s Kozanji Temple is home to the famous 12th – 13th century “Animal Caricatures” scrolls that are often said to be the first ancestor of Manga comics. Kyoto and ONE PIECE are working together to make this special event possible. We hope you will take this opportunity to visit Kyoto and enjoy our city!
■ Event dates: Saturday, October 7 – Sunday, October 22
■ Event Summary:
Find the members of the “Straw Hat” Pirates scattered all over the Kyoto Area!
