2022.07.30

Art Aquarium Museum GINZA will hold a special program “Summer Art Aquarium ~Feel the cool of summer with goldfish~” from July 20 to September 20, 2022.
This summer special program, titled “~Feel the cool of summer with goldfish~,” will feature new exhibits and presentations.
Please enjoy the unique atmosphere of summer in Japan at Art Aquarium.

Cool wind-bell tunnel production

The exhibition area of the “Chochin-rium,” a work based on the motif of “Matsuri Lanterns,” a traditional Japanese lighting fixture, is decorated with layers of wind-bells.
The wind-bells emitting pale light and goldfish swimming like flickering lights in the lanterns express a summer evening in a way that only an art aquarium can.
A tunnel of wind-bells leads to the “Goldfish Bamboo Forest,” a cool summer production.

Flowerium x sunflower

The collaboration work “Flowerium” with the flower arrangement artist Shogo Kariyazaki will be colored with the vibrant flower “Sunflower”, which is a vitamin color that represents summer.

A small new vessel that looks like a vase is made into a large and dynamic work by Shogo Kariyazaki’s ikebana art.
It is a collaboration work with a gorgeous and bewitching world view, a goldfish that swims gracefully with a finely constructed beauty.

New productions start at the Goldfish Corridor and Goldfish Waterfall.

A space has been created to stimulate the curiosity and playfulness of adults [Prince Smart Inn Kyoto Sanjo]

“Prince Smart Inn Kyoto Sanjo” is located in a convenient location not only for sightseeing in Kyoto but also for business.
The façade, which has the image of a modern Machiya and is composed of a combination of lattice doors and grids, which can be said to be the characteristics of Kyomachiya, is by no means gorgeous, but it has a sophisticated design with beautiful rhythms and movements.
It is one of the elements that arouse expectations for staying in Kyoto.
