A European Museum of Manga, will the archives of Osamu Tezuka and the history of the Japanese comics nest in Alsace? The European Center for Japanese Studies of Alsace (CEEJA), a non-profit organization, is working on the opening of a European museum of manga Mulhouse in the medium term, revealed to the world its president, the deputy Agir Olivier Becht, Vice-President of the France-Japan Friendship Group at the Assembly.

The idea, which sprouted in 2017, is still in the budget-building phase. Olivier Becht estimates at 2.5 million euros the envelope needed for its launch, and plans on a model to finance its annual operation. “The project must stand alone, but if the Ministry of Culture helps, it will necessarily be a plus,” admits the deputy, close to the Minister Franck Riester, with whom he founded the group Agir.

If no place is officially stopped, the deputy of Haut-Rhin favors the option of Mulhouse, particularly because of its proximity to Switzerland and Germany and its airport, the seventh busiest in France and the most important East, with 8 million passengers a year.

The latter demanded that the future collection be housed in a traditional building, as is already the case in Japan, where the funds were stored in an old school.
