Many of us wanted to have a pet fish back when we are younger. Most kids love having a gold fish swimming inside a bowl beside their beds and they will be the one to take care of it as days pass by. Fishes really relaxes a lot of people by just staring at them moving and wiggling their tails. No wonder that a lot of people really love fishes nowadays. But in Japan, fishes are not seen inside fish bowls as they are situated inside a drainage canal!
Koi are colored varieties of the Amur carp that are kept for decorative purposes in outdoor koi ponds or water gardens. But would you believe that this kind of fish actually live in Japan’s drainage canal?
Maybe we are all surprised with the fact that there were fishes living on their canals because we Filipinos perceives drainage canals as dirty and foul-smelling open hole or area outside our houses and workplace. In Japan, Koi fishes can actually be situated in their drainage canals.
A lot of people all over the world praises the Japanese people as they were able to grow this Koi fishes on their drainage canals and the fact that even until now they maintained the cleanliness of their outdoor drainage canals. Some of this places had also turned into instant tourist spots because many people choose to visit these kind of places to see such unique attractions.
It was really admirable to Japanese people that they have such amazing and beautiful drainage canals where some fishes can actually live. May this be a great inspiration to everyone that they really made it having such clean and neat surroundings and a wonderful attraction that can easily wipe away our tiredness and stress in our whole day’s work.
Many of us Filipinos will surely appreciate this and would have dream of having our own drainage canals here in the Philippines where beautiful fishes can be seen.
