Iino UFO Museum
The Home of UFOs in Japan
The Iino UFO Museum is located in Iino in southern Fukushima City. The museum was opened in 1992 and contains a wide range of documents and exhibits relating to UFOs and other mysteries, a 3D virtual theatre, and onsen facilities with a view over the local area.
Next to the museum is Mt. Senganmori, a pyramid-shaped hill with a magnificent view that is known for many UFO sightings, unexplained lights, and mysterious events.
The Panorama Shokudo restaurant and gift shop is located in front of the museum and serves a range of popular ramen, soba, curry and rice, and deep-fried meatballs.
Iino is known as ‘The Home of UFOs’ (UFO no Sato) and there are a range of extraterrestrial sculptures and carvings located around the town. We recommend visiting in early February to also see the Iino Tsurushibina Festival.
