Meguro Parasitological Museum

Tokyo, Japan

The Meguro Parasitological Museum is a private research facility that was established in 1953 with the private funds of a medical doctor, Satoru Kamegai. The museum exhibits about 300 parasite specimens and related material. On the first floor we present the “Diversity of Parasites” displaying various types of parasitic specimens with accompanying  educational movies. The second floor exhibits are “Human and Zoonotic Parasites” showing parasite lifecycles and the symptoms they cause during human infection. In addition to research, the museum also performs other activities such as education  and provides special publications.  

The museum has been admission free since it was established. However, running the museum has become more costly, therefore, the contribution is preferable and will be very much appreciated. This is 3 hour course.

Address: 4-1-1 Shimomeguro Meguro-ku Tokyo
