If you ever have a desire to see a bunch of dead and dying goldfish floating in rusty tanks filled with brackish water, look no farther than the Katsushika-ku Kingyo Tenjijo (Katsushika Ward Goldfish Exhibition Area) in Mizumoto Koen. I thought a goldfish exhibition center might be photogenic, and I guess it was, but not quite in the way I expected. This is quite possibly the most depressing tourist attraction I’ve seen in nearly 15 years in Japan, and I write about it here only as a warning not to go. Despite the rather unpleasant smell and the dead fish, it seems quite popular with kids, though.web analytics
