Just when I think that the Japanese has surprised me for the last time, they come out with something like the eel-powered Christmas Tree to prove me wrong. The first of its kind, it is definitely one unique piece of holiday decor.

Located at the Enoshima Aquarium, the eel-powered Christmas Tree is just what you would expect. The tree's lights are hooked up to a tank housing the eel. Every time the eel moves, it powers the lights. Visitors can help the eel by dancing and jumping on a mat placed in front of his temporary home.
