Prior to this visit to Japan, I had never heard of this remarkable man. He spent many years traveling, living in the USA and London before returning home. He did much research on slime molds and also was instrumental in saving many of the temples and shrines during the Meiji Restoration.

Visit this museum to learn more about this remarkable man and his work. Very friendly staff. Exhibits in English and Japanese. Y500/adults.

I came here for a quick visit to meet the curator of the museum, and as a result I didn't get to get to leisurely experience the entire museum.

There are replica buildings outside along with a garden that you can freely enter, but be aware of hornets (suzumebachi) which are very dangerous. The exhibitions and pamphlets are mainly in Japanese, so you may miss out on some interesting historical tidbits if you lack language ability. Make sure to check out the website before visiting (in English)!

That being said, it is a very aesthetically pleasing place and is definitely worth a visit.
