Permanent Poop Museum opens in Tokyo
The world's first poop museum was "Unko Museum YOKOHAMA", a temporary poop museum which opened in Yokohama this March. It was so successfull that they opened a permanent poop museum in Tokyo. "Unko" means poop if you were wondering, and FYI, you will hear the word "poop" repeatedly throughout this article.
The Poop Museum in YOKOHAMA will be ending as of September, but please take comfort in the fact that Tokyo's Poop Museum will remain. "Unko Museum TOKYO" at Diver City Tokyo Plaza (Odaiba) opened on the 9th of August, and all are welcome!
Why poop? What kind of poop is it? What color does it come in? All these questions and more will be answered, so relax those pelvis muscles and tread on.

In this first area, the staff will guide everyone to sit on the toilet.
By using the infinite power of imagination & undergoing some fake groans, your poop will be born! Everyone gets a different poop (as in color). Hopefully you'll get the color you're looking for.

Super Poop Volcano & poop picture area "UNSTAGENIC"
With the newborn baby, the staff will praise you with the words "Nice Unko!". With those words in mind, memorialize the moement with a picture.

The photo-taking area "UNSTAGENIC" has a lot to offer for instagram enthusiasts. The most noticeable one is the huge poop volcano!
Take a break while you let your children play around in the ball pool at the base of the poop volcano. The gigantic poop will erupt, so look out for the countdown and be ready for a laugh.

Be sure to check out the opposite side of the volcano, where you will encounter a wall of poop. Hyperbole aside, neon lights saying "poop"in different languages is something you don't see everyday.

Something has been forgotten
In the corner of the photo area, there is also a hand-made gift shop called "UNKO MART". The shop is made into a "convenience" store, and has a nice range of poop related goods.

Poop game area "UNTERACTIVE"
Sick of just looking at poop? Well now it's time to get down and dirty in poop. It's time to get "Unteractive". You might be wondering why it's spelled "unteractive" and not "interactive". The prefix "un"is just an abbreviation for "unko", meaning "poop". Like there wasn't enough poop going around.

If you are bringing a child with you, then the "Shout Poop" interactive game should be the next place to go. Shout "UNKO" into the microphone, and watch how big your poop becomes. The size of your poop will depend on the strength of your shout. When there's a will, there's poop. That's just what I heard.
Poop stepping goodness
"Hop! Step! Jumpoo!" is an endless step-on-the-poo game. If your kid isn't tired out yet, this will get the job done.
"stop the poop with your hands" interactive game
Adults will find the "stop the poop with your hands" game much more engaging.
Just put your empty hands on both sides of the gaping hole, and use your insight to catch the poop that's randomly dropped. Test your reflexes and see if you have what it takes to catch randomly dropped poop.

After you finish playing, follow the instructions and put the poop back where it belongs
There's also a "Kuso game" section which literally translates to "shit games". Here, you will find a lot of poop related game consoles, which will ultimately fall short. But, that's the whole point. Enjoy the horibbleness.

Poop zone "UNTELLIGENCE" will bring you poop from all around the world
Many poop items from around the world will be on display here, such as "Poopyhead" from the United States. In this card game, losing a round means you will have to wear a poop on your head. Sophistication in a box. Japan's shows off its "Panda's Poop", which resembles panda poop, but is actually a matcha treat. Because why not.
※The exhibition will provide an information sheet in English and Chinese to explain the products.

At the other end is the "Poop Gallery". There are framed pictures of poop drawn by celebrities. If this doesn't satisfy your poop needs, there's also small toilet seats where you can let loose and draw whatever poop related thought that comes to mind.

"Unberto no Ma" - poop power spot
Before you finally leave, you must first pass the "Unberto no Ma". Unberto is the poop guardian diety who's body is connected to vacuum of space. It is said that he increases your fortune. That or your poop energy. At this point, I think they're going for the latter.

The passage connecting to the exit is full of glowing poop. This indicates that your poop adventure is coming to an end. Picture time!
"UNKO FACTORY"- poop gift store
What better way to keep the poop train going when you can take the essence of the poop museum home with you! At the Unko Factory, they have poop goods that you'll want to get your hands on. Here are some examples.
Casual ice box (two colors) 1,600 yen
Using poopy ice at a party would put a spin on things.
But then again, you could take the simpler route and go with poop toilet paper. The color of the packaging is a bit on the nose, but the toilet paper inside is pink and embossed, which is something you come to expect when you pay 500 yen for a roll of toilet paper.
