The major annual event, planted aquarium hobbyists all around the world gather.

Aqua Design Amano hosts the event for planted aquarium hobbyists "Nature Aquarium Party" at Tokyo International Forum on September 17, 2011.

First we are grateful for the warm support and thoughts from many planted aquarium hobbyists around the world after the massive earthquake on March 11. Infrastructures have recovered quickly thanks to international relief efforts, and we are now spending normal daily life. It is our great pleasure for us to host the Nature Aquarium Party 2011 at Tokyo International Forum and welcome many planted aquarium hobbyists from all over the world on September 17, 2011. Major country governments have already eased on travel restrictions to Japan. It is clear the current situation has reached a reasonable safety level for international travelers. We believe visiting Japan offers many opportunities of discovery, and unforgettable memories with fellow planted aquarium hobbyists. We are looking forward to welcoming you here in Japan!
