[Close］Mondays (if it falls on a holiday, then the following Tuesday)
There will be a variety of animals from ones that We welcome you to the "Ukiyo-e Animal Museum", a place where you can meet animals hidden inside Ukiyo-e. The animals that you will see at the Ukiyo-e Animal Museum are different from the ones you see at the actual Nihondaira Zoo and are a bit mysterious; they do not need to be fed, do not grow, do not cry or make noise, and do not die. Regularly, they play a small role in displayed Ukiyo-e and are usually displayed on the side, but this time, they will appear as the main feature. We hope you enjoy this slightly unique "zoo" of familiar animals, animals that appear in fiction, and animals that are designed on kimonos and architecture to your heart's content.
