If you're fishing around for something to do this summer, the Art Aquarium Exhibition 2012 being held at Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, in Tokyo's Chuo Ward, offers an eye-catching exhibition of living art.
The exhibition, designed to showcase the beauty of Edo Period (1603-1867) culture, features tanks of vividly colored goldfish alongside more traditional light and video displays. The centerpiece of the exhibition is a brilliantly lit fishbowl, about 1.5 meters on each side, where 1,000 goldfish float against the backdrop of a darkened exhibition hall.
The exhibition opened Aug. 17 and runs until Sept. 24. Admission is 1,000 yen ($13) for adults, 600 yen for those in junior high school and younger. Children aged 3 and younger enter free.
