KAWASAKI (Kyodo) A memorial hall for the late cartoonist Fujiko F. Fujio, who created the Doraemon series, will be built in Kawasaki, hopefully by fiscal 2010, local officials said Friday.

The municipal government, the Fujiko Production company and the cartoonist’s widow, Masako Fujimoto, have agreed to set up the hall in Tama Ward, where Fujiko spent his last days, and to display more than 40,000 related items.
