    The ART AQUARIUM Museum opened in Nihonbashi, Tokyo on August 28 202 with the concept of “a museum where life dwells.” This will be the largest renewal in the history of the museum Museum, opened by writer and general producer Hidetomo Kimura, with the addition of more exhibits and new and improved interactive areas.

     

    The Nihonbashi Art AQUARIUM Museum opened alongside the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympic, with the expectations that visitors would come from both within Japan and overseas, thanks to the exhibitions which easily explain and represent Japan’s proud traditional culture and performing arts, but due to Covid restrictions, foreign tourists are still unable to enter the country.

  • Frederic Performs Opening Theme for The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window Anime Series

    12.September.2021 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Kobe-based rock band Frederic has been chosen to perform the opening theme song for the upcoming supernatural boys-love series The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window. The song, Saika, will be available on streaming services October 6.

     

    Koji Mihara, bassist and vocalist for the band, wrote the lyrics to the new track. “Something about the way each character’s mental state is addressed so delicately really drew me in. I’m more of an expressive artist, someone who’s aware of even the sounds the audience can’t hear. I approached this with feeling, and a deep awareness of how each character feels. There’s something powerful about two people with such strange talents working so closely together, even though they think so differently. I hope you’ll enjoy Saika, and also enjoy this very deep and moving story about these two unique people.”

     

    The upcoming anime series The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window is based on the popular manga series of the same name, written and illustrated by Tomoko Yamashita. It ran from 2013 until 2020 in the popular monthly yaoi manga magazine Be x Boy, and has sold over 2 million copies. The horror mystery follows Kosuke Mikado, a bookstore clerk able to see spirits, and Rihito Hiyakawa, an exorcist.

     

    The Night Beyond the Tricornered Window will premiere in October on TOKYO MX, Sun Television, BS Fuji, and Fuji On-Demand. A promotional video has been released featuring the new track and some footage from the series, so give it a watch!

  • ‘átoa,’ Part Art Museum and Part Aquarium, Opening in Kobe

    12.August.2021 | SPOT

    Blending living creatures with art, átoa, a new urban aquarium, will open in Kobe’s Shinkocho on October 29, 2021. New images have just been revealed, and we now have an idea of what the interior will look like!

     

    ‘átoa’ comes from a combination of the words ‘aquarium’ and ‘art,’ and as the name suggests, the space will blend over 100 pieces of digital and performance art with 3,000 ocean creatures to provide a never-before-seen experience.  

     

     

     

    The exterior of the Kobe Port Museum looks like a contemporary art gallery

    The stairway leads guests to a cave entrance, making the visit feel more like an adventure

    ‘MARIN NOTE – The Movement of Life’ embodies underwater life 

    ‘ELEMENTS – The Forest of Spirits’ welcomes you to a foggy sea of trees

    átoa original products on sale

     

     

    Rokko, the land on which Kobe City sits, is said to have been formed over one million years ago by the upheaval of the Earth and consistent water erosion. The Kobe Port Museum (KPM), where átoa is located, has long attracted visitors with its unique exterior, embodying the ancient origins of the surrounding lands.

    átoa will be divided into eight different zones, each with its own theme and distinctive presentation. Visitors will first enter the ‘Cave of Beginnings,’ where fish-shaped lights reflected on the walls and floor lead you deeper into the space, as if through a kaleidoscope. 

     

    After emerging, ‘MARIN NOTE – The Movement of Life,’ a visual embodiment of underwater life, will greet you. The sound and scents of the sea will surround guests, with a cylindrical water tank at the center of the room filled with zebra sharks, spotted garden eels, and many more underwater creatures. 

     

    On the second floor, enter ‘ELEMENTS – The Forest of Spirits,’ a foggy sea of trees straight out of a fairy tale. This is where you can find freshwater fish, amphibians, and adorable tree-dwelling animals not typically found in aquariums, like woodchucks! This is another highlight of átoa: you might find more animals you wouldn’t expect!

     

    The third floor houses both ‘MIYABI’ and ‘PLANETS,’ where guests can enjoy a ‘theatrical aquarium experience.’ Discover Atsumi Sakai’s famed cutout art in the ‘MIYABI’ area, meant to simulate a Japanese garden. Enjoy the magical experience of fish swimming just beneath your feet as you stroll along a glass-covered floor. 

     

    The ‘PLANETS’ area houses AQUA TERRA, one of Japan’s largest spherical water tanks, with a diameter of 3 meters. Guests are welcome to ponder the vastness of both outer space and the deepest stretches of the sea. The area is bathed in the light of countless stars thanks to optical fibers embedded in the floor, while mist will continuously pour from above. 

     

    Housed on the fourth floor, an outdoor exhibit, the ‘SKYSHORE Sky Garden,’ will soothe your soul as you play with only the most adorable marine life, from penguins to otters. This is also where visitors can enjoy the átoa cafe, offering a lineup of Instagram-worthy food and drink. 

    The observation deck ‘ROOF TOP’ also provides a breathtaking view of Kobe. Whether you visit during day or night, take in the views of Kobe Harborland and Meriken Park to your heart’s content. A full museum shop will be stocked with adorable plushies and other original products.

  • Identity V x Death Note Crossover Launches

    06.June.2021 | ANIME&GAME

    NetEase’s multiplayer horror game Identity V is currently holding a crossover event with the anime series Death Note. Running until June 27, fans of the series can look forward to seeing some familiar faces in thrilling mind battles.

    Death Note is a manga series written by Tsugumi Ohba and illustrated by Takeshi Obata which was serialised in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2003-2006. The manga has over 30 million copies in circulation. Its anime adaptation aired from 2006-2007. The story tells of a notebook called the Death Note where if you write someone’s name in it they die. It is one of the most well-known series both in Japan and overseas. One of the aspects of the series that draws people in most are the mind battles between its two intellectual protagonists; Light Yagami and L.

    Ryuk is a Shinigami, or Death God, and is the one who drops his Death Note into the human world which is eventually found by the protagonist Light Yagami. He did this on on purpose because he was bored one day and wanted to see what would happen if a human had a Death Note. In the game, he will pursue the Survivors.

    Light Yagami, the protagonist of Death Note, finds the notebook one day and after discovering its secrets, decides to rid the world of criminals and people he deems villains under the guise of Kira. He will try to escape the Hunters in the game.

    L is the second main character of Death Note. Known as the world’s greatest detective, he is tasked with trying to discover why so many people are dying randomly in Japan and who this mysterious Kira is. He will fight against the Hunters.

    Misa Amane is a fashion model and supporter of Kira. She also has her own Death Note and eventually becomes the Second Kira. In the game she will take on the role of an engineer and use her skills to make changes to the Manor.

    A range of accessories, character actions, furniture, and more themed on Death Note are also rolling out as part of the crossover. Items include apples which are Ryuk’s favourite, Misa’s Death Note, Light’s pen, L’s handcuffs, and more.

     

    Discover all kinds of mysterious during the event

    The game is littered with mysterious to be discover and solved. Players can complete daily sign-ins to receive rewards such as Crossover Essence, collecting clues with L by participating in matches, and much more.

    JAPONE Lane

    Goldfish have been tied to Japanese culture since the beginning of the 16th century during the Muromachi Period when they were imported from China. The city of Yamatokoriyama in Nara Prefecture is the oldest location in Japan that has been raising goldfishes.

     

    Due to COVID-19, many summer festivals and events where goldfish would be present have been cancelled up and down the country. That’s where Kingyo Museum’s renovations come in as a way to bring in tourists and sightseers. The museum has expanded to almost double its previous size to bring in new areas that utilise projection mapping and art, such as the AQUA oasis and the JAPANESE AQUARIUM DISCO which has brought in Japan’s first die-cut fish tanks. Visitors can enjoy 38 of Japan’ most prominent goldfish species, from familiar faces to rarer kinds.
