Usually when people visit the aquarium, they expect to see marine animals full of life. Leave it to the Japanese to create something completely different, yet strangely intriguing.
Kori no Suizokukan (Ice Aquarium) in Kesennuma, northeastern Japan uses flash-freezing technology to display about 450 specimens and 80 different species frozen in blocks of ice. The animals are bathed in a blue light and preserved in lifelike poses. It's more like a frozen wildlife museum, than a living marine aquarium.
