This spring in Yokohama, the Unko Museum will delight young and old alike with cute poop.
It’s not the first exhibition dedicated to dookie. There is the National Poo Museum on the Isle of Wight, which is temporarily closed, and the Shit Museum in Northern Italy.
Yes, that’s its name, the Shit Museum. Those seem to focus on either the agricultural importance of doo-doo, a categorisation of crap or its use as faecal fuel.
The Unko Museum, however, is about adorable poo. Unko (poop) can be considered cute in Japan, hence the pink turd from the Dr. Slump anime and the poop emoji it apparently inspired.
The exhibits are more interactive than didactic, with a giant unko sculpture and ball pit, photo spots, and games. There is an exhibit of unko art and unko goods from around the world.
The Unko Museum will be open for a limited time, ending its run July 15.
