An exhibition showcasing over 30 animals will take place with the cooperation of Tokuyama Zoo. The theme of the exhibition is kimokawaii, which means ‘creepy-cute,’ a popular trend in Japan.
The event will take place from June 7 to July 8 at Tokyo Solamachi in Sumida. Barbie (pictured below), a comedian and tarento, will make an appearance on the first day.
Photos are allowed at the exhibition, but flash is prohibited. There will also be an area where you an actually touch some of the animals too.
Let’s take a look at some of the animals you can expect to see at the event. Keep in mind that some are subject to change.
Lesser Bamboo Rat
It has small pupils and big incisors that stick out. It has a very gentle personality and low alertness.
An almost hairless breed of guinea pig.
Emerald Tree Boa
This nocturnal snake fees atop trees, catching spoils like birds and other small animals. During the day, it wraps itself around a tree and sleeps.
The event will also have original merchandise on sale that you can’t get anywhere else, such as collaborative items with Barbie and th eoriginal character Debame-chan.
Attendees aged 12 and below who buy a ticket will also receive an original clear file (pictured above). There’s only a limited amount available!
Many rare animals you can’t normally find easily will be present at the exhibition, so be sure to visit!
