Goldfish swimming around circular tanks has long been a staple in home decor, but these pieces of aquarium art have put fish on stunning display. Every year in the Nihonbashi Mitsui Hall, the goldfish exhibit takes place and the pieces become more stunning. This year, there will be 5,000 fish in 70 different aquariums.

The traditional Japanese designs that are illuminated in these tanks are truly what makes this exhibit different. The goldfish are incorporated into the pieces in order to help push the art that is on display further. In one example, the reflections of the fish against a white backdrop truly add value to the aesthetic. These pieces of aquarium art are truly original, and with its heritage in traditional Japanese design, the pieces are not only patriotic, but also amazing to look at.
