An Object Made of 55 Million Shells

I came to Takeshima Fantasy Museum.
The atmosphere is unique from the entrance.

There is also a large giant clam photo spot.

When you enter, you will be greeted by objects made from real shells.
That's an amazing number of shells!

In 1983, the former museum director, who loved shellfish, purchased shellfish from 110 locations around the world and opened the Gamagori Fantasy Museum.

After that, the management changed and the grand opening was held in 2010.

The tour route at Takeshima Fantasy Museum is an adventurous journey with the original characters Michelle and Gamago.

There are 4 mini theaters in the museum where you can follow the adventures of Michelle and Gamago while enjoying the shell art.

Once you take a step from the entrance, you will be invited to a fantastic world.

I found a flower garden section.
If you look closely, even the tulip flowers and leaves are reproduced with shells.

This is a fish.
Each scale is also delicately expressed with shellfish.

The shellfish dolls are also a highlight.
This is Bon Reed, a female pirate made of shells.

The inside of the building is decorated with beautiful LED illuminations, and you will feel as if you have really wandered into the world of the sea.

Space-time Tunnel

Let's go to the most popular spot "Tunnel of Time".
When I put my hand in the mouth of courage...

A beautiful spiral of light appears.
The color change is 10 patterns! !

It is also recommended as a photo spot, so please take a commemorative photo.

Spiritual Spot "Fantasy Love Dragon"

There are other photo spots like this!
If you take a picture and see a dragon, it is said that you will have a bond of love with the dragon.

Blockbuster! "New Cinema Ryugujo"

The masterpiece "New Cinema Ryugujo", which was created with a mind-boggling amount of work, is worth seeing.

A very auspicious "Kinkobashi" with gold leaf of pure gold. It is said that if you cross this bridge, you will have good luck with money.

Next to Kinkoubashi Bridge, there is also a shell walkway where you can walk barefoot.
Moderately, the pressure points will be stimulated.

Beyond the bridge is Ryugu Castle, where the beautiful Otohime and Urashima Taro live.
How many shells are used in Ryugu Castle? It is truly a spectacular sight.

Takeshima Fantasy Museum is a theme park that both adults and children can enjoy.
Please stop by when you visit Takeshima.
