Museum of Fantastic Specimens

This online collection of creatures is “curated” by Hajime Emoto. The three-story virtual museum consists of nine rooms filled with water and land dwelling monsters, demons, and dragons from all over the globe. Some of the monsters look so incredibly real, it’s hard to believe that they are sculpted from paper, modeling paste and bamboo. Since the virtual museum is written entirely in Japanese, the links below can help guide you through a tour:

Each specimen has a clickable thumbnail that links to additional photos and background information (in Japanese). The basement contains a bookshop and a cafeteria that serves dishes prepared with some of the creatures featured in the museum.
