He's also remarkable for what he has not done. So many companies based in the area leave the Kansai region when they become more successful, fleeing Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto for Tokyo's lure. But Kyoto Animation, despite its success, stayed in Kansai where it continued to create anime loved by people around the world. Kyoto was more than just geisha and scenic views, but where part of the most loved Japanese anime was made.
I spent a lot of time in the historic Fushimi neighborhood in Kyoto. I have seen the buildings crammed between narrow roads and sake breweries. This is a region where famous temples and temples are located, many of the ages or older, but for the fans of anime Kyoto Animation has become equally important. You can donate here.
