When you arrive at the fish garden, the closer you get, what you start to see is this movement of gold & orange in the water. As you get closer, you can see that it is hundreds of Koi gold fish, swimming close together, hoping to get a bit of food, offered by the tourist. They are so thick, it looks like you can walk on them, without falling through.
