The Godzilla statue is hidden deep inside the heart of Ginza, hard to find. Espezially when you keep looking up at the sky for a cosmic edition…

A bit more eye catching though, the life size blue whale located outside the national science museum..

NHK Studio Park

NHK-studio park presents you with a taste of “a life in the dazzling spotlight”.  All information delivered in Japanese only, hence a little inaccessible for the non-Japanese person, but definitely worth the effort.

This brave lady tossed all shyness aside, and delivered the news like a pro.

Meguro Parasitological Museum, feat love bugs <3

A rear gem of a museum, very hard to find. Displaying over 300 speciments of parasites…


Makes you think twice about the raw fish you ate last night!!!

There is also a small souvenir shop, where you can buy anything parasite. What about a necklace with a parasite charm?

The parasite charm is of a Diplozoon, which also happens to be the museums logo. This is the bug that the museums director Dr. Satoru Kamegai spent his whole life studying, a great choice. Diplozoons are very romantic parasites.  A man-bug and a lady-bug meet when young and beautiful, then their bodies melt together and stay that way for the rest of  their life. Its the only species known to be 100% monogamous, humans on the other hand…exceptionally infidèle!
