If you want a quintessential Japan experience visit the Poop Museum (Unko Pop-up Museum) in Yokohama. The pop-up exhibit opened on March 15, 2019, and is planned to run until July 15th, 2019. The museum is an Instagram heaven with poop shots everywhere. You can play “crappy games,” draw poop in whiteboard toilets, run around smashing poop, see how loud you can scream “UNKO” to make an Unko jump on a screen and more. Reserve your tickets online.
