In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
If you're fascinated by the world of creepy crawlies, it's worth paying a visit to the Toshimaen Insect Museum, one of Toshimaen Amusement Park's many attractions. The museum houses around 40 types of foreign and native insects, including the "Hercules Beetle," the world's largest rhinoceros beetle.
Wander through the exhibition room to inspect some of the world's most fascinating insects safely sitting behind glass displays. If you're feeling brave, you can always head on into the museum's Fureai Jungle room, where you can touch and play with the rhinoceros beetle. For those inspired to do a little insect cultivation, there's a store stocked with all your insect-keeping needs.
For updated information on opening hours, closings, prices, and more, please check the official website or ask the facility directly.
