I love anything with the word haunted in it and I have since I was a kid. I don't know why the idea of something being haunted has always appealed to me so much but it just always has and still does. So when I came across this haunted house exhibit by Tarafu Architects, in Tokyo's Museum of Contemporary Art, the kid in me squealed, the parent in me squealed and the art lover in me squealed. In an attempt to appeal to and engage with the smaller art lovers, the exhibit ghosts, underpants and stars, encourages all those things that normally are forbidden in a museum, like running around and touching and interacting with the (ghostly) art.

For whatever other unknown reason as to why I think and feel this or that, Tokyo has never been a place that I have planned to visit. I just don't have the desire to go such a big city. But now I want to go there and if I could we would be planning a field trip to this fabulous haunted museum right now! Maybe it will make its way to other cities someday. I will be hoping that it does.


  1. Tokyo isn't on my list either, but this museum looks amazing! What a great and fun way to introduce kids to art and to show them that it's FUN!

  2. Tokyo has never been HIGH on my list but it's on my list alright, particularly for the food. And I like the shivers down my spine when I look at these images - road trip!

  3. Tokyo has been on my list (maybe in the top 15, not super high up) since a friend of mine did her study abroad semester there. She ended up going back to teach English just outside the city for a year....that was 5 years ago, haha. She loves it, and the pictures she's posted over the years make me really want to go! It's a crazy dense city, and looks pretty visually overwhelming (so many people!) but I'd go just for this museum! It looks so funky! Kind of like the moving paintings in Hogwarts, no? xo

  4. This museum is awesome! The event planner in me wants to know if they do events ;) Care to take a quick trip to Tokyo for a cocktail networker? Steven has always wanted to visit too, but lil old me is afraid to go without a translator, is that terrible? Either way, this museum is worth the trip. I wonder if it's on Atlas Obscura yet! It's definitely worthy :)

  5. Wow, this museum looks like it could bring out the kid in anyone! Touching and playing with art in a museum? Unheard of! Sounds like an adventure waiting to happen!
