Only in Japan is there a Poop Museum (Unko Museum). Japan has a poop fascination – I am always reminded about when my kids were in Japanese hoikuen (daycare) that the diary book would have comments about the color and form of their poop. I thought it strange, but now understand that you can tell a lot about a person’s health from their diet.
Poop Museum (Unko Museum) – Odaiba, Tokyo
Well, back to the Unko Museum (Unko means poop). My daughter and I paid 2,600 yen to visit for 90 mins (you buy a ticket for a two-hour block). She is six and thought it was hysterical. I found humor more in the adults that were screaming poop and running through the museum to get the “best shots” of poop exploding volcanoes. The museum is an Instagram heaven with pop 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.
I recommend that you reserve your tickets online. We did and only had to wait about 10 mins in line to enter at noon. Reserve tickets here.
