If you're curious about the strange world of parasites, and have a steely disposition, visit Meguro Parasitological Museum, the only museum of its kind in the world. Inspect over 300 parasitic specimens in formaldehyde jars, along with informative movies and somewhat disturbing displays regarding the parasites' life cycles and interaction with humans. Examine the museum's prized exhibit, a record-breaking 8.8 m (28.8 ft) tapeworm, along with accompanying rope of similar dimensions, to give you a true sense of its magnitude. Be sure to pop into the gift shop before you leave, and browse a host of novelty T-shirts and key rings.
