Goldfish designated as a natural monument assemble in full force! Enjoy beautiful goldfish at the ART AQUARIUM, a museum where life lives

ART AQUARIUM MUSEUM GINZA (located in Ginza Mitsukoshi) expresses the culture of viewing goldfish that has existed since the Edo period as a work of art "ART AQUARIUM" in the present age. About 70 kinds of goldfish swim in various aquarium works in this museum. This time, all four kinds of goldfish designated as natural monuments in Japan have been collected. Experience the beauty of ornamental fish called goldfish at the ART AQUARIUM MUSEUM, where you can find everything from typical goldfish to rare goldfish.

4 kinds of natural monuments, Tosanishiki, Nanjing, Tetsugyo, and Jigane are available!
The four types of goldfish that have been designated as natural monuments can be viewed in the work areas called "Goldfish Collection" and "New Goldfish Review". Please enjoy the beautiful appearance of the living art and goldfish swimming leisurely in the original way of viewing goldfish, which is called “horizontal viewing” where you can enjoy the appearance from the front and side, and “top viewing” where you can see the beauty from above.

ART AQUARIUM MUSEUM GINZA Winter Special Exhibition "Winter Goldfish Glittering in the Lights" is being held <br /> Currently, the ART AQUARIUM MUSEUM GINZA is holding a special winter exhibition. Please enjoy the winter production that can only be seen now, such as a tunnel-shaped production where pine trees, which are considered to be prosperous trees, grow thickly, and decorations with beautiful colors of camellia flowers.

Tunnel-shaped decoration “Chochin Rium”

“Flowerrium” colored with camellias

●Chochin Rium <br /> A space of about 10m where spherical aquarium works that look like lanterns are lined up like a path. Rare types of goldfish swim in a total of 14 tanks. There are moments when the goldfish appear larger due to the lens effect in the tank, and it is popular at the museum as a unique work of art.
During the winter special exhibition, this space is lined with pine trees and decorated with plum blossoms and kites.

●Flowerrium <br /> A collaboration work with flower arrangement artist Shogo Kariyazaki. Goldfish swim gracefully in an aquarium that looks like a vase. It expresses the beauty of “stillness'' flowers and “movement'' goldfish, which are opposite but synergistic.
This work, which is decorated with seasonal flowers, is colored with camellias in the winter special exhibition.
