Enoshima Aquarium in Kanagawa Prefecture is one of the most popular aquariums in Japan, itself located near the sea and hosting a myriad of unique ocean creatures. This year, in an effort to allow visitors to get a truly one of a kind experience, the aquarium will be holding a very special event that captures the beauty of the sea at night.

Night Wonder Aquarium 2016 is a three-part event that utilizes digital technology, lights, and sound effects to recreate the ocean world at nighttime. In stark contrast to the bright facility during the day, Night Wonder Aquarium will transform the space into a dark, moonlit sea at the arrival of the evening hours. Visitors will be able to walk through the exhibitions as if they themselves have become one of the fish, and observe the plethora of creatures from a brand new perspective.

The event will be held until December 25th, 2016, and will offer original night aquarium food, drinks, and souvenirs to make the trip even more memorable. The original food menu even includes glowing cocktails and shaved ice!
