View the Cherry Blossoms with the Jellyfish: Enjoy an Experiential Art Exhibit at the Tokyo Sumida AquariumActivity
At the Sumida Aquarium located at the Tokyo Skytree Town, we will be holding an interactive art exhibit called “Cherry Blossoms and Jellyfish” where you can enjoy watching the cherry blossoms together with the Jellyfish from February 28th (Friday) to April 27th, 2020 (Monday).
This exhibit consists of approximately 5,000 mirrors spread out throughout the ceiling and walls of an approximately 50 meter long slope. This is called the “Kaleidoscope Tunnel,” a Spring exclusive experiential exhibit designed to make it seem like the jellyfish are floating together with the cherry blossom petals.
Behind the eight jellyfish tanks lined up against the tunnel walls are images inspired by the view of the city’s cherry blossoms. On the floor are projected images that integrate an interactive system that reacts to people’s movements.
During the period that “Cherry Blossoms and Jellyfish” is being held, we will be selling “Cherry Blossoms and Jellyfish Soda” inspired by the exhibit at the Penguin Cafe. This soda is quite adorable, with sparkling jellyfish-shaped cubes floating in a cherry blossom-colored cider.
We recommend posting pictures of this drink on your social media!
