Collecting, conserving, and presenting items related to Minamata is one of our utmost concerns.
The Minamata Disease Museum counts on approximately 100 panels of photographs and explanations.
Many of them come from the victims of Minamata disease and their supporters, whose stories and words helped to change public awareness on environment, pollution and democracy all over Japan.
