A nostalgic blend of Showa scenery and colorful schools of goldfish

In the first year of the Reiwa Era (2019), the largest Goldfish Exhibition, “Edorium,” a fashionably retro goldfish exhibition with the theme “Nostalgic,” is wafting Showa Era atmosphere at Sumida Aquarium.

Showa-themed advertising billboards, miscellaneous goods, goldfish lantern decorations and music, take you back in time.

If you walk above the surface of a projected video, water ripples appear as if you’re walking on water.

Website: Ryan’s Recycling Company

YouTube: Ryan Hickman

“If I can do it, anyone can do it.”

-Ryan Hickman

10-year-old Ryan Hickman has been recycling cans, plastic bottles, and glasses since he was 3 years old.

Ever since, he has been picking up trash from the neighborhood and has been taking them to recycling centers to be made into new things.

The reason why he got into recycling was because it’s good for the environment and he wanted to make a difference.

He now has a recycling company, “Ryan’s Recycling Company,” where a customer contacts him to pick their cans and bottles to be recycled. His dad helps him with the driving and the carrying of heavy stuff.

He hosts a YouTube channel, Ryan Hickman, where he explains what are recyclable and not, answers letters about recycling, does beach clean-ups, and other recycling-related videos.

He also gives talks about recycling at schools and start recycling programs, as well as donate garbage cans with easy to understand labels so that they can recycle right.

He sometimes drives around his neighborhood with his mini car, collecting cans and bottles.

Ryan has donated a total of $9,000 to PMMC (Pacific Marine Mammal Center) out of the money he got from recycling. Aside from that, he is saving money to buy a recycling truck.

The Show About Science

9-year-old Nate Butkus has been hosting the conversational science podcast, “The Show About Science,” since he was just 5 years old.

“The Show About Science” covers various science-related topics from biology to chemistry, forensics to climate change, and evolution to nanotechnology.

Nate interviews scientists and educators from around the world and each episode is filled with fascinating information about, you guessed it, science.

Science has been his favorite topic since he was three. At 3 years old, he made red salt water with salt, water, and red food coloring.

He loves his necktie and wears them to school almost every single day except for when it needs to be cleaned.

His dad books the guests and Nate has to approve of them. If they’re lucky, sometimes the guest books them.
