A unique exhibition opened Wednesday in Kyoto featuring famous anime and manga characters, as well as other icons of Japanese pop culture, drawn in the style of traditional Japanese paintings.

The exhibition, titled “Bokura-ga Nihon-wo Tsuideiku” (“We Will Inherit Japan”), shows a collection of 35 pieces by local artists that reimagine characters such as Black Jack created by the late manga artist Osamu Tezuka and virtual pop singer Hatsune Miku in the traditional styles of the Rimpa school of Japanese art or 18th-century painter Ito Jakuchu.
