The new Unko Museum Yokohama is set to open on March 15, 2019 on the second floor of the new ASOBUILD entertainment facility in Yokohama which is opening on the same day.
This limited-time museum features a range of poop-themed exhibitions from giant sculptures to cute and sparkly area known as the Unstagenic Area, a combination of the Japanese word for “poop” (unko) and the words “Instagram” and “photogenic.” There’s also the Untelligence Area where you can learn about the history of faeces and the conditions of people’s poop around the world. There’s even the Unteractive Area where you can enjoy playing poop-related games.
The UK is home to its own National Poo Museum and South Korea has a toilet museum called Mr. Toilet House. Japan has hosted numerous events related to faeces to discuss diet and toilets too, but this is the country’s first amusement-type facility focused on it and it welcomes people of all ages and nationalities to get involved.
Advance tickets are now live on the ALE-BOX official website and will also be sold via e+ on February 16. Additionally, all people who visit the museum during the period March 15 to 17 will receive some original merchandise.
Further information will be posted via the museum’s official Twitter page in the run up to its grand opening.
An original pop/house song written has also been written for the museum and can only be heard by attending. It was written by Kenmochi Hidefumi of Wednesday Campanella with Frasco on vocals.
