Little World リトルワールド

An open-air anthropological museum-cum-amusement park outside of Inuyama, the Little World Museum of Man is focused around a collection of native architecture from some twenty-two countries. Arguably a bit on the kitschy and dated side, the park is nevertheless a popular daytrip in the Tokai area, with lots of "multicultural" souvenirs and ethnic food, and a more photogenic site than some of its more dubious architectural reproductions might suggest.
