Meguro Parasitological Museum

Posted by frankie23

Try to think about parasites without a feeling of fear, and take the time to learn about their wonderful world of the Parasites

Such is the mission statement of sorts from the official website of the Meguro Parasitological Museum. A small little institute based in Tokyo, the museum boasts over 45,000 specimens, each beautifully encapsulated and mounted for display. They claim to be the only parasitological museum in the wold, and I’d be very surprised to find out otherwise. Admission is free, which would probably partially account for the fact that it is apparently a rather popular date spot; I can only think of a few ladies that I would take to such a place, but I’m quite certain they’d all love it terribly.


I’m absolutely fascinated; this is definitely going on the list of “Things To Do” when I make it to Tokyo, and I suspect it’ll place highly in my treasured memories. I love me some parasites, oh yeah.
