Sit, Lie down, and Feel Unity with FishKyoto Aquarium
A school of gleaming Japanese sardines, pitted stingrays swimming with elegance, striped puffers with beautiful patterns.... In front of a gigantic fish tank inhabited by roughly 11,000 fish of 50 species, five white rugs are placed, on which some children were seated looking for fish they wanted to see, while some adults were lying down to view the fish.
This is a part of an event held at Kyoto Aquarium, Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto, in collaboration with Cinnamoroll, a popular character titled "Cinnamoroll to Suizokukan no Nakamatachi," or Cinnamoroll and Aquarium friends. Fluffy and smooth-textured rugs have been installed so that visitors can feel a sense of togetherness with fish.
Enchanted by comfortable rugs and the dreamy ocean world, many people were enjoying a relaxing time. Staff of the aquarium said, "We would like visitors to view the tank, while feeling as if they were under the sea." The event will continue until March 14.(Translated by Mie Hiuzon, Psyche et l’Amour, Inc.)
