Skating Rink Closes Amid Outrage Over Dead, Frozen Fish. #Jp

Two weeks ago, the Space World amusement park in Japan installed a skating rink with 5,000 dead, frozen fish entombed in the ice. Even though park officials insist the fish were already dead when they purchased them, some people found the rink to be in poor taste, which prompted its shutdown on Sunday. “We thought that we could provide an opportunity for visitors to enjoy ice skating while learning about various kinds of fish,” Space World’s general manager told NHK. “We regret this terribly.” But some observers weren’t offended at all. “What’s the difference between skating over the beautifully decorated rink with fish in the ice that are already dead and will only be thrown away, and visiting a museum to look at already dead dinosaurs?” Oshita Ayano wrote on Facebook. Space World now intends to melt the ice in order to remove the dead fish, and then hold a memorial service for them.
