Description

Held between July 5th - September 23rd at Tokyo's Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, the ART AQUARIUM exhibition will host the largest ever collection of Kingyo (goldfish), witharound 10,000 of them on display as part of fantastic famous artworks.

Designed by artist Hidetomo Kimura, this exhibition marvelously blends the elements of art, design, and entertainment. World-class aquatic art solidifies Art Aquarium as one of the prides of Japan. Through the aquarium, a concept is designed based on a traditional Japanese motif that has attracted a total of 9.45 million paid visitors to date.

This year’s exhibition has an Edo Period theme to it, as watching kingyo (goldfish) was a past time for people back then where it rooted itself into the common people's culture. With gigantic beautifully shaped fish bowls filled with thousands of kingyo, an almost magical and psychedelic atmosphere is created leaving you feeling like you’re in a different dimension, whilst appreciating the beauty of the art work adorned with the goldfish.

The exhibition also hosts a night aquarium too, with live performances from hot DJ's and even dance performances by young Geisha from Gion in Kyoto; alcohol also being served while you enjoy the music and art, giving another exciting side to this unique event. Part of the Eco Edo Nihonbashi 2019 Series, you can also enjoy other events centered around the celebration of Edo Period Japan with the Wind-Chime Forest Path, Goldfish Lantern Walkway, Art Aquarium Summer Festival, and more!
