During our honeymoon in Japan we wanted to visit the parasite museum as we like weird stuff & had read about it. On arrival, we were pleased the museum was free entry. It was quite small though, I has expected a large museum filled with lots of freaky stuff. It was very interesting though & had rows of labelled jars, detailing the parasite/infected animal inside (look out for the mouse & the turtle head....when uploaded onto Facebook my aunt was horrified at "the Japenese food in the jars" hahaha!).
For a small museum it did have a lot of interesting stuff, I would like to see more though & it would be great if they could extend the collection. There was a lot of medical terms I didn't understand but, it is after all, scientific research. I would have loved to buy something but it didn't have many souveniers. A pickled freaky animal would have been a great souvenier but I don't think they'd have allowed it through customs. Definately worth a visit.
