The trick is to scoop the fish before the paper scoop becomes too wet.
The store charges JPY 300 to play the Goldfish Scooping Game. The store opened two months ago, and gives customers the opportunity to enjoy the traditional summer festival game.
Asakusa Kingyo is a goldfish concept store where customers can buy various kinds of traditional Japanese goldfish shaped gifts and also try the traditional summer festival scooping game.
