About this book

Language: Japanese

This book interprets the relationship between humans and aquatic organisms from ancient times to the present transition of aquariums

What is the meaning behind "watching fish"? Beginning with ancient fish pond culture, a unique aquarium exhibition in the early days, its involvement in colonial rule, the influence of science fiction and movies, the hardships during World War II, the story of the exhibition, and even virtual reality, this book gives an overview of the aquarium culture of the east and west. Including illustrations, such as the latest aquarium setups that are becoming more hybridized with technology, it will introduce you to the world of water beyond the glass.

Summary in Japanese:
