Art Aquarium, I’m going to miss you! <sob!>
Yes, this is the last year they’re going to produce this eye-popping cross between goldfish and SFX, and they’re making up for the last few lackluster seasons by putting on the equivalent of a fireworks grand finale!
And they added one installation that put a crink in my neck, because I stared up at it for so long: Goldfish Ceiling!
Dates: August 6 – September 23 (2019)
Hours: 11:00 – 22:30
Admission: Adults: ¥1000, Children: ¥600*
You can buy tickets online or get them at the door – sometimes there’s a line (especially in the last few days before it closes) but usually you can just buy a ticket at the reception desk and walk right in.
* There are a few nights when admission is higher because of the entertainment. Check the “Night Aquarium” special events calendar for details
After swimming with the fish, Jonelle Patrick writes novels set in Tokyo
Writing mystery books set in Tokyo is mostly what I do, but I also blog about the odd stuff I see every day in Japan. I'm a graduate of Stanford University and the Sendagaya Japanese Institute in Tokyo, and a member of the International Thriller Writers, the Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters In Crime. When I'm not in Tokyo, I live in San Francisco. I also host a travel site called The Tokyo Guide I Wish I'd Had, so if you're headed to Japan and want to check out the places I take my friends when they're in town, take a look!
