Itami City Museum of Insects伊丹市昆虫館(2020/5/31まで休業中)

Museum / Science Museum

An insect museum located in Koyaike Park built to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of Itami City. The museum's biggest draw is its butterfly hothouse, where year-round visitors can view some 1,000 butterflies spanning 14 species inside a domed glass hothouse filled with tropical flowering plants. One of the largest butterfly houses in Japan, visitors can see tree nymph butterflies, a variety only found naturally on the islands of Okinawa and southward; there are also chrysalises on display. The museum's live insect exhibit room has exhibits displaying some 30 insect species, including leaf insects-only three facilities nationwide have living leaf insects on display.

          Hyogo Areas


          Hyogo prefecture stretches from the north coast to the south coast on the western end of the popular Kansai region, encompassing verdant mountains, urban beaches, and fantastic historical sights. The prefecture's main attractions lie along the south coast at Kobe, the prefectural capital, a pretty harbor city best known for its production of the renowned Kobe beef, and Himeji, the home of Himeji Castle, one of the country's most beautifully preserved feudal castles, perched magically atop a hill.
