One of the more unusual spots on the Tokyo Museum Scene, the Meguro Parasitological Museum will leave you questioning the very existence of an appetite for hours to come. Filled with displays and diagrams of some of the world’s most unusual and common parasites, you’ll be glad for once that there is little to no English information. If you’ve been thinking of becoming vegetarian and are looking for that final motivational push, it’s right here, and it’s free. See tapeworms the length of busses and countless jars of preserved horrors, just don’t look too closely at where they come from.
