Post-perfectionistic Japan

Oh…look at the time!!!

Its five minutes past five (closing time), and Im still inside the Tokyo National museum. Who would belive…such inconsiderate behavior was tolerated!

I certainly dont think this “flawless entity of furniture” was an intende part of the exibition, but it definitely states the contemporary and yet historical intent to keep things in order!

On the other hand. The road to HELL is paved with such good intentions (according to Madonna). And incidents do happen, where on wonders “what the h**** were they thinking?” Such as this dark alley, containing….an image of the post-perfectionistic Japan! So disturbing….

Can not look…a collection of trash, my eyes hurt!!!

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..

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!
