NARUTO Exhibition: Experience the Art
Written by Devilchoco

“The Epic Saga Told Through Artwork”

“The Naruto Exhibition”  has begun in Roppongi, Tokyo since April 25.

I went this extremely exciting exhibition at least. That was simply awesome, I was totally psyched out! Honestly the entrance fee was expensive more than expected, BUT THE EXHIBITION WAS SUPER AWESOME MUCH MORE THAN EXPECTED!! A comment below is written by Masashi Kishimoto.(From 道: -MICHI- page 5; Official Guide Book ©Masashi Scott Kishimoto/Shueisha Inc.)

ここには「NARUTO-ナルト-」の15年間がそのままあります。皆様と一緒に歩いてきた15年、本当に長い道のりでした。ここからは ほんの少しの時間ですが またゆっくりナルトと一緒に歩いてやって下さいますでしょうか。皆様の軌跡の中にほんの少しでもナルトのきつね顔が見つかりますように・・・・。

What you see before you is the culmination of a journey-the fifteen-year joinery of Naruto. And what a great journey it has been, thanks to loyal fans and readers like you. I hope you will enjoy retracing some of the steps with Naruto and his friends here at the exhibition. But as you go forward, look out – from time to time, you might catch Naruto’s mischievous face peering out at you, as fox-like and silly as ever.

These pictures below are entrance to THE NARUTO’s WORLD!!

At the beginning you could be able to retrace Naruto’s step from the start of his story-all on the big screen. The original movie screenings and pieces of original artwork came together!!(Sketching,photography(videotaping), and the use of cellular phones are prohibited. The pictures with comment: (C)岸本斉史 スコット/集英社 are provided by Shueisha).

After the movie, the big screen opened, then the Hokage monument(3.9 meters tall and 6.6 meters wide) suddenly had appeared and had looked up to the celling there was a young Naruto with paint bucket and brush in hand! That was so real!

What I most impressed on the exhibition was that there were original/famed art forms(Graphic boards) from the first chapter in the Naruto saga. The original arts were presented in those entirety. I am sure that you would be enjoyed the many impressive scenes by original form!

I believe one of the most famous scenes would be the battle of Naruto vs. Sasuke at the Final Vally. In the exhibition it’s created by using sound and light effects had recreated the waterfall between the statues of Hashirama and Madara. You can see the battle in full, living color.

In the second half of the exhibition, artwork changed to Naruto’s son, Boruto, and friends will be displayed. There was also a recreation of the library desk from Masashi Kishimoto’s hometown;Nagi in Okayama Prefecture. The exhibition hall was jam packed with items you can only see out there.

Enjoy NARUTO’s favourite RAMEN in Roppongi Hills! There are 5 ramen shops which serve Naruto’s ramen and you can vote which Ramen is the best! 

The website above in Japanese only, if you have any question better contact in Roppongi Hills directly. I enjoyed 2 kinds Ramen, one of them was at “AFURI”(the picture below) and the other one at “Tsukemen TETSU”. Somehow I voted to “AFURI’s Ramen”! It’s in soy-sauce soup with Japanese citron flavour…That was so good!  The another one was in pork bone broth soy sauce. I really considered that I should have voted to Ramen in pork bone broth soy sauce, because the Ramen on that “NARUTO” was just like that! I guess I should have had Ramen in pork bone broth soy sauce…

I also introduce Ramen websites of Tokyo, Osaka, and others below.

About the author





I Love traveling abroad and reading comic books.

Dots turn into the drawing.
The drawing gets connected with the story, becoming a comic book.
The 2-D world goes beyond the borders and generations to reach us, readers.
This is what I would like to accomplish on Asian-port.
