At the Sunshine Aquarium (Ikebukuro, Tokyo), the second collaboration project "Horror Aquarium" with ghost mansion producer Hirofumi Gomi will be held from today (September 28). Its name is "Ayakashi Mermaid". The period is until November 5th.
A story-style horror aquarium where you can experience "fear" visually and audibly. This project, which makes the best use of the characteristics of the aquarium, ended with great popularity, with the first "Cursed Water Comb" being held in October last year (2016) and about 20,000 people visiting.
This time, the second installment, the theme is "mermaid," which has the duality of beauty and fear. The story is that a mermaid who fell in love with a man turns into a human figure for only one day and goes up to the land, but the betrayal of a friend turns a happy memory into a fierce grudge.
Along with this, the "Canaroa Cafe" attached to the aquarium will also be a "horror cafe" for a limited time. A shell-like "horror burger plate" (900 yen, tax included, same below) with red pearls, a "mermaid's eyeball drink" (700 yen) with Calpis-flavored "eyeballs", and a "mermaid's eyeball drink" (700 yen) with bloody berry sauce Collaboration menus such as "Extermination Sea Salt" (650 yen) will be on sale.
In addition, at "Shop Aqua Pocket", "Mogitori-kun", which was popular at the time of the first event, became the original version of Sunshine Aquarium, "Mogitori Mermaid Cookie" (432 yen), and the original blend "Ayakashi Mermaid Drip". "Coffee" (540 yen) will be on sale.
The horror aquarium is open from 6:30 pm to 10 pm. During the period, the aquarium will be open until 18:00.
