In the midst of the unprecedented sightseeing boom in the 1970s, the "hidden treasure museum" was born in a sightseeing spot for adult entertainment.The production of each hall, overflowing with novel and eccentric creativity, looks fresh even in the present age.Sexual amusement parks born in the Showa era are like art spaces.The book also includes photos and manuscripts from 2023, which follow the aftermath of the Hibokan.Most of the hidden treasures in this book no longer exist, and there are some hidden treasures that are probably only seen here in photos even. It is a shame that there was a time, just a short while ago, when Japanese people created such strange places and made them popular as backstage tourist attractions, just as children were becoming adults. Whether you are ashamed of it or enjoy it, it will change the way you look at our country.
