Art Aquarium 2017

7th Jul–24th Sep, 2017 11:00am – 11:30pm

Officially it’s the “Eco Edo Nihonbashi Art Aquarium 2017”. Started in 2011 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the bridge at Nihonbashi, the event has gathered quite a following as a summer event in Tokyo and is now in its 7th year.

The exhibition features ornamental goldfish in various ornate bowls, tanks and ponds with colorful lighting and effects. Even on weekdays, it can be quite crowded. In general, it’s more a place to take interesting snaps rather than peacefully contemplate the art.

From 7pm the venue transforms into a drinking spot (better for adults than kids) with DJs, light shows, special cocktails, premium sake in a “night aquarium”.

On weekends, organisers claim there will be performances by big name DJs and “gorgeous” artists. They’re also planning a “Maiko Night” with Maiko shipped up from Gion in Kyoto from July 25th until July 28th and a “Oto-hime/Oiran Nights” from September 10th to the 15th.
