Japanese Fish Tank Decorations

Japan has always been a country associated with design, atmosphere and tranquility. The abundance of these elements in the country only serves to highlight the lack of said elements in ours. But as is the case with many Westerners, I am a great admirer of all things Japanese, from the food to the architecture, and try to incorporate these aspects of the lifestyle into my own life. This obsession with the country has led me to create a list of fish tank decorations that reflect the Japanese culture, whether it be through the design or function of the item. But one thing that all of the items have in common is that they provide a taste of the culture of this great country, and hopefully can bring some tranquility to your own life, and to the life of your fish! So without further ado, let me introduce the list!
