The overall town offers the chance to experience traditional Japanese cultural elements that make people feel cool in the summer, including yukata (summer cotton kimono), goldfish, lanterns, and firework. The history of these elements goes back to the Edo Period (1603 to 1868). The Art Aquarium, which exhibits goldfish with beautiful illuminations and digital technologies, attracts large numbers of visitors every year. Shops participating in this event offer discounts to customers wearing yukata. Other features of the event include cool summer sweets with a goldfish motif, a path for enjoying the sound of wind chimes, and a Bon festival dance and food stalls in the weekend. They enhance the mood of the traditional enjoyment of summer that is unique to Nihonbashi.
