Art Aquarium at Telepia Hall

Today, we went to see the Art Aquarium exhibit at Telepia Hall, which is in downtown Nagoya. We had seen it in Nagoya Calendar, and thought it looked really neat! It was super crowded, but worth it!

First, we headed out to lunch at Pupu Kitchen, a macrobiotic, organic vegan restaurant.

Today’s lunch was a vegetable croquette, garden salad, seaweed salad, seitan, marinated vegetables, broth with root vegetables, and rice. It was delicious!!

After eating, we headed over to Telepia Hall.

The Art Aquarium is a special exhibit that runs from August until October 1st. It uses living goldfish, lighting, and their enclosures to create really cool art.

The first display was three aquariums set into the wall.

Next was a small stage with about 6 or 8 fish bowls.
