"Ikimono x Light x Color = Ikimono Art Exhibition" is a special exhibition that focuses on "shine" and "photogenic" and can be enjoyed in an artistic sense. This is the first attempt to fuse space design with beautiful creatures that have features such as body color and pattern like art!

Of course, photography inside the exhibition hall is also OK! If you find your favorite ikimono, let's take a close-up shot and upload it to SNS and Instagram ♪

[Watching time and precautions for watching? ]

The viewing time is about 30 to 40 minutes if you just watch it. I want to take a picture carefully! If that would be better that we expect about 1 hour. Because the hallway in the hall is rather narrow, there is a possibility that there will be heavy traffic in front of the popular ikimono. When crowded, I think it's ant to attack from the second half of the exhibition , which has a relatively large space !

The fluorescent stickers on the aisle were actually attached by visitors. One piece will be distributed at the time of entry, so stick it wherever you like

The venue is broadly divided into four areas, each of which has a unique perspective on which the creatures are displayed. Also pay attention to the artistic and fascinating space design!

In the neon / fluorescent area , as the name suggests, lively things like vivid colors like neon and fluorescent colors are introduced. The appearance of shining in the dark under the black light is very fantastic. It seems that these creatures do not emit light themselves, but appear to emit light by reflecting the light they receive.

In the Japanese light area , the venue is decorated with Japanese items such as fans and umbrellas. In a warm Japanese-style space, lively objects are arranged like objects. The collaboration of Japanese light with fish that has fluttering elegant fins and insects with beautiful luster is a new feeling!
Personally, it is the strongest “shine” spot.

The white area is a pure white space to make the most of the original colors of the creatures. The Panther Chameleon that appears last is a strange creature that changes body color depending on mood. What kind of appearance will you welcome me? It is fun to go to the venue.

Enjoy the photogenic space ~ colorful area ~

The colorful area that decorates the last creates a vibrant and photogenic space with decorations and items associated with the body color and pattern of the creature.

There are also many other exciting topics in this area that are sure to look good on SNS, such as the unique name "Marmetapio Frog" and the colorful "Green Macaw".
It is a new entertainment that does not fit in the traditional aquarium!
