Acquarium, Tokyo sea park、Yoshio Taniguchi、 1989 葛西臨海水族園


We spend the evening at the terrace of this acquarium, which incredibly was open untill 8.00 pm two nights in a row within a year!

Let me tell you just one difference with Western world. The potential of this place, in every southern part of Europe, would be stay open every night until 2.00 am with thousands of people enjoying the adorable view of the sea.
