Witness the mind warping charms of Japanese erotica museums… if you dare.

Like any reasonable human being, you’ve thought to yourself, “Man, I wish there was a building where I could wander around surrounded by scary cartoon like genitalia at every turn.” Well rejoice, because there’s a place in Japan where your fantasy is a reality.

Here are some choice scenes from the city of Beppu’s hihōkan

 

Yes, that’s Grumpy on the right taking matters into his own hands, so to speak. Yes, the Queen has a dick for a nose. The worst part: when you hit a button on the outside of the exhibit, all of the characters would move. Dopey waved the underwear up and down, Grumpy flogged the dolphin, the others ducked around maneuvering for a good view of the action.

And now onto $7 million dollars worth of sexy silliness!

NSFW: Japan's $7 Million Sex Museum Sure Is Silly

Whether it’s North America, Europe, or Asia, sex museums dot the globe. But how many of them can claim Superman sex or phallic nunchaku?

Enter the Ureshino Sightseeing House of Hidden Treasures. Located in the city of Ureshino in Saga Prefecture, this is a most unusual sex museum, or “hihoukan” (秘宝館) in Japanese. And that’s saying something because hihoukan are, as a rule of thumb, pretty odd!

Many of these types of sex museums were built in the 1970s and 80s in hot springs resort towns. They’re from a simpler time and seem aimed at adult couples, ages 18 and up. As Japan Deep points out, this hihoukan also has a Shinto shrine, with an enshrined nude wax figure—the first of its kind in Japan.

The Ureshino Sightseeing House of Hidden Treasures was erected in 1983—a period of Japanese prosperity and excess. As noted by Japan Deep, a sign out front boasts that this hihoukan uses “the best in the latest electronics technology” for this “sex wonderland.” The construction costs were 500 million yen (US$5.1 million), while the items on display cost another 200 million yen (US$2 million). All this, of course, was over thirty years ago.

Here’s a look at some of the exhibits, courtesy of YouTube user Keioh19.

By the 1990s, fewer people began visiting these establishments as Japanese society’s values changed. The country’s subculture, however, found appeal in the museum’s kitsch appeal. These museums now seem a bit dated for some—relics from a bygone time. More and more of them have closed in the past few years.

And next spring, on March 31, the Ureshino Sightseeing House of Hidden Treasures is closing its doors, helping to mark the end of a sexy, if not somewhat goofy, era.
