Detective Conan (Case Closed) Creator Gets his own Museum

The hometown of Gōshō Aoyama, Hokuei-chô in Tottori-ken, will create Aoyama Gôshô Furusato-kan, a museum honoring the creator of Meitantei Conan (Case Closed).

The Hokuei-chô cultural facility currently has a section about Aoyama and the town will remodel the cultural facility exhibit into Aoyama Gôshô Furusato-kan. The budget for the museum is approximately one 194 million yen (US$1.65 Million).

Aoyama Gôshô Furusato-kan will open in March of 2007. There will be a display with the North America version of the Case Closed manga, released by Viz Media.

Hokuei-chô has already done several machi okoshi projects related to Meitantei Conan, including Conan Bridge across the River Yura and Conan statues in the town.
