Last summer, I went to Miraikan, a Science Museum in Odaiba district of Tokyo and had a special experience at there!
location of Miraikan
This is Geo-Cosmo, which is a symbol exhibit of Miraikan. The earth shaped display was showing movement of the clouds on the globe which reflect the everyday image data sent from the weather satellites.
There was a special exhibit in the museum on the day I visited there.
The exhibit was about…..
Toilet & Poop!
Price of the ticket for the special exhibit was 1200 Yens (about ＄10).
A guide for this exhibition was a cute poop whose name was ‘Britto’ (sounds like Burito lol). Read the English description about him in the below picture.
The exhibition was for educating people about toilet and human feces, where the feces go, and how they are processed once people flush toilets.
Below is a display stand for exhibiting kinds of human feces. What kind of poop is healthy? 🙂
And,this a ‘poop making’ class! Many children were making poops with clay in the class.
For the last, below is my favorite stuff in the toilet exhibit. Here you can become feces and be flushed down a toilet. People wore poop hats and slid into a huge toilet (of course, the toilet does not send you to a sewage treatment plant).
This is a video about the toilet slide 🙂
It was a fun experience. I just wished that the slide has been little longer though.
