Mr. Takashi Yanase who was the creater of “Anpanman” perished. “Anpanman,” is one of the most popular Japanese anime cartoon series for young children. He raised in Kochi pref. in Shikoku.
The Anpanman (man of bread filled with red bean paste) character first appeared in Yanase’s tale for children in 1969, and the stories revolving around the hero who offers his own head to those who are hungry later became a popular picture book series. They were made into a television cartoon in 1988.
Many family come to the Museum of Kochi and take a ride on Anpanman train. It’s like a holy place for children. I am thinking of you and praying for you in this time of loss.
