[Ukiyo] Introduction in some areas
Indulge in the gorgeous and gorgeous world of Edo's flower district
■Ukiyo's "Oiran way" created by the representative work "Oiran"
Hanamachi was the most gorgeous and innovative place in the Edo period. The most brilliant and symbolic moment in that flower town is "Oiran Dochu". A masterpiece composed of various "Oiran" which is a masterpiece of many art aquariums. The advanced lighting and sound systems give you an unprecedented sense of realism.
■The entrance to the world of Flower Street "Goldfish Daimon"
A long time ago, Daimon, which was said to have been at the entrance to the flower district, appeared as the "Goldfish Daimon," which holds a large lantern with goldfish dancing wildly. Beyond the Goldfish Gate, you will find a more gorgeous world.
When you look up at the Goldfish Daimon, you can see the "ceiling goldfish", in which countless goldfish swim on the ceiling, and the "reflectorium" on the left and right, where the mysterious appearance of the goldfish appears, creates an entrance to another world.
[Mystery] Introducing some areas <br /> Inviting you to a mysterious world with mysterious beauty on an overwhelming scale ■ "Goldfish Forest" lost in the mysterious world
The Goldfish Forest can be seen from the 1st and 2nd floors of the venue. You can experience the enjoyment of viewing one work in multiple ways, with a production that can be viewed differently depending on where you look.
[State from the second floor]
The goldfish forest is designed to look down from the second floor. You can enjoy a bird's-eye view of the mysterious beauty of the world that you have been wandering around until now. Enjoy the mysterious and fantastic space production of the Art Aquarium that uses the entire space in combination with the dynamic 3D image as if a goldfish is swimming in the air. The image changes depending on the season.
[State from the first floor]
If you walk and appreciate the mysterious world where many life-sized columns of water line up like a forest and many goldfish swim, the boundary between the world under water and the outside world becomes ambiguous It is rare.
■Appreciating from the perspective of space "Earth Aquarium Japonisme"
"Earth aquarium that expresses the earth, which is a water planet. Nishikigoi swims brilliantly and wraps the earth seen from space with the mystery of Japanese beauty.

Facility concept "Museum of Life"
The Art Aquarium, which has been loved as a summer tradition, will go to a large permanent exhibition that creates a seasonal space throughout the year.
It will be a museum with a new sensation that will change and new discoveries with each arrival. This is the first time in Tokyo except in summer.
In addition, he produces an original space that stimulates the sense of life, light, sound, incense, and taste. Now that it is a turning point when changes in people's values towards entertainment are coming, we have been particular about "feeling with our five senses" and thoroughly pursued art that "you cannot taste unless you visit" and "realistic". It is such a "living" museum.
Art Aquarium Art Aquarium artist Hidetomo Kimura, who has established a unique art field called "Art Aquarium" by fusing art, design, entertainment and aquarium, is a new art exhibition from Japan to the world.
The exhibition, which started in 2007 as the "Sky Aquarium", has evolved into an "Art Aquarium" that specializes in goldfish and is composed of a fantastical world view reminiscent of the flower district of Edo.
