Upcycled Aquatic Phone Booths
Phone Booth Aquariums in Japan Mesmerize with Playful Goldfish

Wanting to bring a bit of a spectacle to the streets of Osaka, goldfish admirers Kingyobu from Kansai, Japan have made aquatic fish tanks out of ordinary phone booths. The Phone Booth Aquariums are meant to disrupt the mundane routine of people walking on the street and bring mysticism to their day.

Incorporating the belief in Japanese culture that goldfish are a sign of fortune and wealth, the phone booths are filled with gallons of water and fish are put in to swim around languidly, enjoying the view of the city streets and bringing those who choose to admire them good luck. The phones are left within the booth to make aquatic play-things as they float aimlessly in the water. To add even more magic to the already mystifying Phone Booth Aquariums, at night there are lights installed at the top of the booths to give off a glow as the fish swim around.
