A museum replicating the Tokyo apartment building that was home to the late Osamu Tezuka and other legendary manga artists opened Tuesday, 38 years after the original wooden building was dismantled in 1982.

Tokiwaso Manga Museum in the capital's Toshima Ward features replicas of the rooms and interiors of the two-story building in which artists including "Astro Boy" author Tezuka and "Doraemon" creator Fujiko F. Fujio lived in the 1950s and 1960s.

Works of the former Tokiwaso residents are exhibited on the first floor, while the second floor features re-creations of the authors' rooms, as well as a shared kitchen and toilet.
