Cyborg 009

Here’s some pictures of some really cool lockers in Sendai station. When I first went on vacation to Japan five or six years ago they were originally in the main part of the station. Now they are regulated to the walkway between train platforms. It shows characters from the manga Cyborg 009.

The creator of this manga is Shotaro Ishinomori, who hails from the nearby town of Ishinomaki. He also created Kamen Rider and the Power Rangers among other famous works. Anyways this was originally made to celebrate an aniversary. Here’s a couple closer shots of it.

If you like this stuff, there is also the Ishinomori Manga Museum in Ishinnomaki. I went there a few years ago and it was really cool. The building is shaped like a UFO.

It’s filled with all kinds of stuff. I took a photo of the Kikaider statue they had there.

You’re actually not supposed to take photos inside, but I didn’t know because the signs were in Japanese (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it). Here’s a link to the Manga Museum website.

    Where in the station are those?

    • If you go through the gates to the platforms where the Tohoku line is, just keep walking towards the bathroom, and you’ll see them just on your right.
