An 800-meter-long pool will transform the once dark and dirty canal, scheduled to open in summer 2015.
Yasuo Fukuda, a company spokesman, said:
“The pool will only be 12 meters wide, but 800 meters long. The water will not be canal water, but purified city water that will be pumped into what is, essentially, a giant tank.”
