There were 15000 visitors in the Tokyo exhibition this November and 16000 visitors in the Osaka exhibition this December. I, myself, went to the Osaka exhibition as well. It was a very nice exhibition and I could look through a lot of the original artworks. I really recommend this exhibition to all of you!
There are cases where no tickets are sold at the exhibition, so I recommend those who are planning to go to reserve a ticket in advance.
