Doraemon's Grave

Doraemon's Grave
Who doesn't know who Doraemon is ? Doraemon is a popular and long-running manga about a robotic cat who come from the future to help Nobi Nobita. Doraemon manga was created by the duo Fujiko Fujio. Fujiko Fujio is a pen name for Hiroshi Fujimoto ( Fujiko F. Fujio ) and Abiko Moto ( Fujiko Fujio A ). Doraemon was started in December 1969 by Fujimoto, and since then Doraemon has appeared in lots of mangas, magazines, and animation. Fujimoto is one of my favorite manga artists. Went to the grave today to pay my respects to Hiroshi Fujimoto.


Doraemon's Grave
Fujimoto was buried in Midorigaoka. From Tsudayama station, you need to walk an hour to reach his grave because the graveyard is really huge.

Don't worry too much about getting lost. There are lots of signs there.

Graves are everywhere.

Doraemon's Grave
Fujimoto died in September 23rd, 1996 due to the liver failure. Because of that, there is no official ending for Doraemon. Any endings were actually fan fiction.

Halfway there !

Doraemon's Grave
One of the most famous fan fiction endings was made by Nobuo Sato. In this ending, Doraemon's battery power ran out. Nobita was given a choice between replacing the battery inside Doraemon, which would cause a memory reset, or waiting for a brilliant robotics technician who is able to resurrect Doraemon one day. Nobita swore that very day to do his best at school and become a robotics technician. In the future, he successfully resurrected Doraemon and thus lived happily ever after.
