Doraemon is a Japanese manga series created by Fujiko F. Fujio (the pen name of Hiroshi Fujimoto) which later became an anime series and an Asian franchise. The series is about an earless robotic cat named Doraemon, who travels back in time from the 22nd century to aid a schoolboy, Nobita Nobi.  The manga / anime series had brought tons of joy to both young audience & the older generations whom had grown up reading/watching Doraemon.
The New Chitose Airport in Hokkaido built the first Doraemon airport "theme park" as part of a new extension to its domestic terminal. The "Doraemon Waku Waku Sky Park" comprises 1,200 square meters (about 13,000 square feet) of space in the new area.
The park includes a shop, a cafe, a library, a workshop, an entertainment area, a commemorative photo area where fans can "ride" on the time machine featured in the show, and a playground. Admission to the paid area of the park costs 600 yen (about US$7.60) for adults, 400 yen (about US$5.00) for middle and high school students, and 300 yen (about US$3.80) for elementary school students. Children under 3 are free.
The new extension had officially open last month. Construction was supposed to be completed in June, but due to a shortage of materials after the Great Eastern Japan Earthquake (Higashi Nihon Daishinsai) disaster of March 11, the deadline was pushed back a month and a half.
