Sunshine Aquarium Moudoku-ten Deadly Poison Exhibition ReMix (Toshima, Tokyo)

This year marks the 10th anniversary of Sunshine Aquarium’s special exhibition, Moudoku-ten, which debuted in 2013. During a 2022 commemorative event, the Mokudoku Exhibition ReMix earned the most votes in the first Special Exhibit General Election as the exhibit respondents wanted to see again the most.

This year’s exhibition showcases 25 species of poisonous creatures, many of which were popular at the previous two installations. Alongside poisonous creatures from the rivers and sea, the exhibit also highlights poisonous plants that bear an uncanny resemblance to everyday food, and poisonous creatures lurking within our daily surroundings. In addition, informative panels provide insights into these creatures, their poisonous parts, and the type of poison they possess, as well as a poison analysis, based on the original Poison Levels established by the Sunshine Aquarium (ranging from slightly poisonous to fatal).

Another event highlight is the ‘Skunk Odor Experience Corner’, where a skilled perfumer who has actually encountered a skunk’s secretions firsthand, has crafted a controlled replica of the pungent skunk odor.

Tickets including original exhibition-inspired ‘Poisonish Candy’ also available for purchase.
