ART AQUARIUM MUSEUM GINZA (Location: Ginza Mitsukoshi) will hold a special spring project "Mecha Sakura ~ SAKURA Special ~" from March 3rd (Friday) to April 25th (Tuesday), 2023. The beauty of goldfish dancing and swimming in a space surrounded by cherry blossoms. Please enjoy the beautiful scenery of Japan.
[The arrival of spring, goldfish dancing in cherry blossoms]
In this project, we will exhibit various works and create a space with the motif of cherry blossoms, which symbolize spring in Japan, and welcome everyone in spring attire. There is also a space that expresses a natural scene where cherry blossoms are in full bloom and weeping cherry blossoms hang down. Cherry blossom petals dance in the tank where the goldfish swim elegantly, and the spring breeze blows throughout the building.
Please enjoy the “much cherry blossom” space delivered by ART AQUARIUM.
– Shiny scented goldfish, all in cherry blossoms!
In this project, in addition to adding a cherry blossom motif decoration, the light and scent, which are the major elements that make up the art work of art aquarium, are also specially designed for cherry blossoms. Please enjoy the atmosphere like cherry blossoms at night in a fantastic space.
In addition, there are varieties of goldfish that have “Sakura” in their names. Enjoy a variety of “cherry blossom x goldfish” art.
●Goldfish Day <br /> Today, March 3rd is Goldfish Day! Goldfish are a summer tradition, but it is said that in the Edo period, goldfish were sold from around February to decorate the Dolls' Festival. For this reason, March 3rd was established as Goldfish Day, just like Hinamatsuri. (There are various theories)
・ A group of works that are “mecha cherry blossoms”
●Goldfish Corridor-Yaezakura Corridor- <br />A colonnade of goldfish stands in a space that expresses the corridors seen in Japanese temple architecture. This space, which seems to continue forever, is decorated with double cherry blossoms, making it a spring-like corridor. The colorful glowing water tanks on the left and right and the view of overlapping flower petals invites you to a fantasy world of “very cherry blossoms”.
●Goldfish Collection -Sakura Crystal- <br /> Round tanks are lined up like an art gallery, and you can appreciate various kinds of goldfish. The goldfish collection space is decorated with cherry blossom crystal blinds, making it a gorgeous space. In addition, cherry blossom petals will color the inside of the tank work. Please enjoy the collection of goldfish in a “very cherry blossom” space.
●Goldfish Waterfall – Weeping Cherry Blossoms -<br /> In this work inspired by a waterfall, weeping cherry blossoms hang down from the top of the waterfall, expressing spring in Japan's natural environment. Please enjoy the scenery of cherry blossoms in spring.
● New Goldfish Evaluation – Cherry Blossom Color – A goldfish swimming gracefully and leisurely in a square tank. It is a work that allows you to see the goldfish peeking out to the surface of the water and appreciate it from above. Nishijin brocade belts are used to decorate the sides.
Cherry blossoms bloom in the aquarium, and cherry-colored marbles shine around.
●Chochin Rium-Cherry blossoms in full bloom- <br /> A space of about 10m where sphere-shaped aquarium works that look like lanterns are lined up like a path. The cherry blossoms are in full bloom in this work area, which has been creating a space according to the season! The row of cherry blossom trees is illuminated by cherry-colored lanterns along with the lantern rium, in which goldfish swim.
●Flowerrium-Sakura- <br /> "Flowerrium" is a collaborative work with flower arrangement artist Shogo Kariyazaki. This work, which is colored with seasonal flowers, is also a cherry blossom version in the spring project. Please enjoy Flowerrium unique to spring.
・Goldfish with “Sakura” in their names
Four kinds of goldfish with "cherry blossom" in their name will be exhibited in conjunction with the special event held in spring.
