To stay connected with another aspect of Japanese culture in the area.
Anime and Manga provide a window into Japanese culture that is not only a gateway into a still relatively difficult culture to access, but also unique art forms that range from commercial to spiritual, profane to insightful, and everything in between. Of all Japan's cultural treasures, anime and manga are perhaps the most worldwide and influential.
