A Day at Odaiba’s Unko Museum: A Poop Themed Museum
Ever wanted to spend the day surrounded by poop themed items, games, shops and photo spots?!…yeah me neither…BUT NOW YOU CAN! In classic Japan style, one of the craziest museums has recently opened up in Odaiba…a poop themed museum! ‘Unko’ means poop in Japanese and so it is titled the Unko Museum! the Unko Museum first opened in Yokohama however it has now moved to Odaiba…meaning it’s even easier to access! If you’re thinking about going, keep scrolling to find out all the amazing things that you can do there!
When you first walk into the museum you are bombarded with poop straight away by watching an unko themed video! Don’t worry, it’s not what you think!! It’s actually a super cute bright colored video with a poop themed song playing in the background! There will also be a museum worker there who talks you through all the ‘rules’ of the unko museum! If they can’t speak english, don’t worry…they will give you an english leaflet explaining everything, and all the signs are in both english and Japanese!
After watching this crazy video the staff will guide you to the next section which is titled ‘My Unko Maker’! This is one of the funniest parts of the museum as you must all sit on a toilet of your choice and the staff will tell you to push while taking your picture. After this when you stand up there is a super cute poop in the toilet that they will put on a stick for you and you can carry it around the museum to take pictures with!
You are also aloud to take this poop home with you for free, which is a nice souvenir from the unko museum!
After making it through the entrance, it’s time to go and enjoy the actual museum!!!
This area is designed for you to get amazing instagram pictures! The main part of the museum is set out as a main room with a giant poop, mini ball pit and a wall full of LED decorations that have the word ‘poop’ in every language! From this main room there are multiple rooms coming off it with different themes, and are amazing photo spots! Lets take a look at each room in more detail!
The main room
The main features of the main room is the LED wall and the giant unko! This wall is honestly such a cute part of the museum and is a great place to get amazing photos for your instagram! The different languages also show the connection of people from all over the world through poop…which is very funny and entertaining!
At the bottom of the giant poop there is a ball pit that is filled with balls and poop shaped items! You are aloud to sit in it and take pictures which is super fun! The giant poop also has projections on to it which are constantly changing!
The Unko Mart room is a room that is themed as a super market selling super cute items such as ‘Unkola’ and ‘Unchips’! Unfortunately, you can’t actually buy these items, but you can buy many others in the shop and in the souvenir shop at the end of the museum!
This room was one of my favorite rooms in the whole museum because it was so cute and you can shoot some AMAZING photos there!! the colors and theme of the room is so bright and really fashionable!
Unko Tea Room
This pink themed tea room is decorated with a HUGE poop themed cake and various other items needed for a tea party! The spread is set out on a table with two seats for you and your friend to take pictures in! A very pretty room and perfect if you have a pink themed instagram feed!
There are 3 other rooms which are slightly smaller to the others and don’t have a specific theme but are super cute photo spots! There is the room with floating poop, the toilet room and the poop wall room! Each room, like the others, are decorated super cutely and are full of bright amazing colors! Check out these pictures to see for yourself!
This area is full of games and fun activities for you and your friends to partake in! There is the Kuso Game center; full of unko themed games, the unko shout and the unko catching game! Lets take a look at them in more detail!
The Kuso Game Center
The game center is full of these game machines that you can play for free and as much as you want! Each machine is a different game that are all unko themed! They are super fun to play with friends! My personal favorite was a game where you had to catch as much poop as you could in a toilet!
The Unko Catch
This was probably one of the funniest parts of the museum! You have to try and catch a plastic poop but you don’t know when it’s going to fall! Its very hard but the best part about it is that it films your reaction and plays it back in slow motion! Super fun to play with your friends!
The Unko Shout
This part of the museum includes you having to go up to a mic and shout “UNKO!!!” as loud as you possibly can! It will then show you how loud you were by comparing your volume to a famous tall building! It’s very fun and relieves a lot of stress!
This area is made up of poop facts and items from all over the world! There is a whole section that shows you different poop themed games and items from many different countries which is super interesting and funny to see!
There is also a wall full of toilet seats that have a whiteboard underneath them that lets you write or draw whatever you want! (of course you should make it unko themed)! This was a super fun and chill part of the museum!
So unfortunately our time in the unko museum had come to an end, so it was time to go shopping for souvenirs in the unkonbini! The unkonbini is located at the end of the museum but can be accessed from the outside, meaning anyone can go shopping for unko goods, even if you don’t want to go to the museum!
To access it from the museum, you first go through a beautiful room full of mirrors and floating LED poop, it’s super great for pictures!
Once you get to the shop you will see it’s just a cute as the museum and will make you want to buy everything! They have tons of goods on offer from stationary, to accessories and even their own TOILET PAPER!!
