Many goldfish swam in the lightly lit tank

As I continued on and on, I saw rows of aquariums lit up with lights and goldfish swimming inside. This is the Art Aquarium Museum in Ginza, Tokyo, and as the name suggests, it is based on the motif of an aquarium. Inside, there are a number of tanks with goldfish, each lit up in the dark. The goldfish swimming in the multicolored lights are beautiful, and the goldfish swimming in the pale light are also beautiful. The lighting changes with time, and the arrangement of the goldfish swimming in the tank also changes with time. The expression of the aquarium changes from moment to moment, and the same face is never seen again. This ephemeral nature of the aquarium is probably the reason it is called a museum.

By the way, Aqua Park Shinagawa also has an aquarium that is lit up, although it does not claim to be an art museum. The jellyfish swimming there were beautiful under the lights. As I gazed at the tanks with this in mind, I became confused as to the difference between an art museum and an aquarium. Whether it is an aquarium or a zoo, if the lights are dimmed and the lighting is elaborate, I feel that there is room to call it art.
