Squid are one of the sea creatures that feature most often in Japanese cuisine — whether as sashimi, squid-ink pasta or Hokkaido’s renowned ika meshi (squid sausages filled with rice), to name but a few squiddy specialities.

However, in its summer exhibition “Fushigina Ika no Nakamatachi” (“Mysterious Squid Friends”), Sunshine International Aquarium in Tokyo’s Ikebukuro district will give visitors a chance to see these fascinating creatures alive and doing what comes naturally (in captivity).

In a time of both misinformation and too much information, quality journalism is more crucial than ever.
