Art Aquarium Nihonbashi Gold Fish and Koi Exhibit


Japanese look forward to the Art Aquarium's spectacular goldfish show every summer, an experience that has attracted more than 10 million people since it first took place in 2007. Today, at the end of August, Art Aquarium is launching its first permanent facility in Nihonbashi, where visitors can see 30,000 goldfish swimming in glass containers of all shapes and sizes, illuminated with rotating projections and multicoloured lights. Each viewing room is built to be a treat for the eyes and ears in a double-storey facility. Hidetomo Kimura, creator of the Art Aquarium, considers fish as living works of art and wanted to merge a specially built room with the beauty of nature to construct glittering spectacles, is the head of the Art Aquarium. Koi fish and goldfish are important components of Japanese waterscapes, and Kimura views fish as an element of Japanese art that is often ignored.





Address: 〒103-0023 Tokyo, Chuo City, Nihonbashihoncho, 1−3−9

Admission: Tickets are available for ¥2,300 or about $23 (¥2,000 for entry after 6 pm); free access for children 12 years of age and under.


The exhibition was permanently closed in 2021.​
