Doraemon’s "Anywhere Door" certainly exists out there somewhere in the world of fantasy.

If you want to find this portal, you might just be in luck at the Doraemon Exhibition Singapore 2022, which will open at the National Museum of Singapore on Nov 5.

This acclaimed Doraemon exhibition, which opened in 2002, is being held outside of Japan for the first time, and Malaysian fans (we know, there are lots of them!) can make their way across the Causeway to explore the past, present and future of Doraemon.

The exhibition will showcase Doraemon through the lens of 28 leading contemporary Japanese artists (Takashi Murakami to Yoshitomo Nara) and arts groups.

Each artist has been asked to respond to the theme of “Create Your Own Original Doraemon”. The brief is to capture their personal memories of Japan’s beloved icon.

A diverse mix of ideas, mediums and techniques that include paintings, sculptures, graphics and photography will be presented.

The Singapore edition of the exhibition also features a selection of the Fujiko F Fujio Museum’s prized drawings and sketches by the late Doraemon creator Fujiko, in a rare feature titled “Manga Doraemon Original Drawings Exhibition”, specially showcased for the first time outside of Japan.

Also, not to forget a Doraemon-themed cafe (that's your Insta-opportunity sorted out!) and limited-edition merchandise all the way from the Fujiko F Fujio Museum in Kawasaki City, Kanagawa at the exhibition in Singapore.

The exhibition ends on Feb 5, 2023.
