No, I was not aware the Skytree had an aquarium; I may check it out someday (I'm not normally in the Asakusa area).

cmathews95 that's so awesome. No wonder they have such great tanks. Why can't prices be that great here?

Darkblade48 I went to shops in Tokyo and Kyoto - they are generally out of the way (not in tourist locations), so that is why you may not have seen them.

The ADA gallery is quite a bits away from Tokyo; I don't feel like taking the bullet train just to go see it (as it is expensive).

Greasy Oh didn't realized this thread got bumped/still active haha. Thanks for the additional pics lotzodomo and darkblade48! Where in Japan did you see those shops? I went to Tokyo and Kyoto earlier this year. I didn't really see any aquarium stores... and I didn't have enough time to go up to see the Amano gallery.... =/

I actually went back to HK at the end of 2011. I may have a few more pics to add... Turn over rate over there is pretty crazy, couple of those shops I posted were not there 11 months later.

herns I actually met and spoke with a guy who sells plants on one famous online bid site and he mentioned he got his plants from Thailand. He mentioned it was not a hard process getting an application and get it cleared from USDA. The plants need to be pick up personally from USDA at the airport.

Allowed or not?

The importation of plants from abroad will require a phytosanitary certificate, the onus of which is on the importer to obtain.

It is generally not worth the hassle.

Only thing to say is wow indeed, beautiful.
Sending to a friend that lives in HK.

Glad you know it

Let me see if I have any other pictures...

Edit: Guess not - I could have sworn I had some from some other shops in Tokyo as well as in Kyoto (guess I didn't take pictures; either that or I can't find them)
