Last day to catch the Art Aquarium in Nihonbashi, this aquarium is an annual event which runs through summer in Tokyo.
I visited in mid August which was considered as the peak times as it was during the Obon holidays and the school holidays in Japan. We arrived 30 minutes before opening time but the line at Basement 1 was already at a wait time of at least 30 minutes.
neon lights greeted us when we entered into the hall.
Big eyes gold fish.
Swimming away for everyone to photo them….
Another breed of goldfish.
“Dancing” away in the waters, posing for us.

Another type of gold fish with slightly bigger heads.
Goldfish themed kimono.
1 of the themed gold fish display, with gold fish displays stacked up like steps.
1 of the star show case, with goldfishes placed in this display that is similar to a champagne pouring ceremony.
The lights display will change so you can observe it in different colors.

Maybe the number of heads if almost the same numbers as the fishes swimming in the tanks.
