A new pop-up museum dedicated to poop opened in the port city of Yokohama near Tokyo, as footage filmed on Wednesday shows.

Called Unko (Japanese for poop) museum, the attraction focuses exclusively on cute poops in colourful settings, aiming at dismantling social taboos around the important aspect of everyday life.

"Originally kids like poop, but when people grow up, most of them think that poop is something dirty, that we need to take it away. In order to change that typical idea about poop and let even adults play with it like children, we've decided to open this poo museum," explained spokesperson of the museum, Ryohei Koda.

The museum is aimed at both children and adults, with giant sculptures, photo spots, and various games - all dedicated to poop culture - as well as an exhibit of unko art and unko goods from around the world.
