What comes into your mind when you first heard that ‘koi fish could live in a drainage canal in Japan’. You would probably be surprised and ask, ‘the water might be so clean in that drainage canal’. When we say drainage canal, it only means that it is a dirty and foul-smelling area and we would rather avoid it. Can you imagine how drainage canals turned into a tourist attraction? Crazy right?
