National Museum of Nature & Science

Museum in Ueno & Yanesen

The Japan Gallery here showcases the rich and varied wildlife of the Japanese archipelago, from the bears of Hokkaidō to the giant beetles of Okinawa. Elsewhere in the museum: a rocket launcher, a giant squid, an Edo-era mummy, and a digital seismograph that charts earthquakes in real time. There’s English signage throughout, plus an English-language audio guide (¥300).
