Be the Cyborg 009 – put on a pair of stop motion goggles and kill invisible enemies or stare at a specially made display to let your eyes move to create images in a room. If want to play your loved Doraemon, then step on to the other area of the exhibition where what you say is turned into text that is projected on a screen where on screen cartoons and react to it. Tickets will cost you ¥1,300 (approx. $17) for adults and ¥700 (approx. $22) for children under 18.
