2013: Your greatest moment
the most interesting thing
The most interesting thing I saw in 2013 is an exhibition featuring the goldfish light show. I went to this exhibition in Tokyo during summer vacation. When I heard about this exhibition from my friend, I thought that it was not interesting for me. My image of the goldfish is that they are usually pets in the house or school. Until this summer, I thought it was unconventional to exhibit the goldfish. So I could not imagine an exhibition featuring the goldfish light show. I was absolutely amazed when I saw a lot of exhibits because there were a lot of beautifully lit water tanks with the goldfish. A lot of water tanks were various shapes, for example, it looks like a castle or the kimono which is traditional Japanese clothes. The most interesting way to display the goldfish was collaboration with the image on the screen. The video told the story with “Emaki” that is the traditional Japanese books. The contents were about the four seasons. The collaboration with the goldfish was so beautiful and glamorous.
It was the first time to watch an exhibition of the goldfish with colourful lights. Before going to this exhibition, I could not have imagined how charming the goldfish could be so I would never have attended this event. This exhibition was held during the summer. It gave us cool-looking because this exhibition used a lot of water. This exhibition can be enjoyed among all generations. If the exhibition will be held next summer, I definitely go there because I know the charm of the goldfish with lighting now.
