When planning a special exhibition, I was surprised at the depth of the food when I thought about "food", which is usually too common to be aware of. It is an exhibition where you can enjoy the wonderfulness and fun of living things through this "food" that is familiar to everyone, so please come visit us!

Chain of Life-A Surprising Episode of Food
Most of the creatures, including humans, live by receiving someone's life. Through various exhibitions, including the food chain of eating and eating relationships, I want you to know the gratitude and splendor of living things again. Create an opportunity to think about the familiar "food" that you eat as a matter of course.
