Two hours northwest of Tokyo in Chichibu, there is a museum of rocks called Chinsekikan where you won’t learn a thing about geology. However, you’ll do spend a few delightful hours marveling at strange exhibits such as the Elvis Presley rock, the Boris Yeltsin rock, the Jesus rock, the Nemo rock and the Donkey Kong rock.

Chinsekikan, which means “hall of curious rocks”, features over 1700 specimens. About 900 of them resemble human faces. These unaltered rocks naturally resemble celebrities, religious figures, movie characters, and more.
