About 400 goldfish were found in the swimming pool at a junior high school in Sayama, Saitama Prefecture, school officials said Tuesday.
The school said the fish were spotted on Monday morning in the 25-meter pool, TBS reported. Students scooped the fish out of the pool, teachers said.
A school official said there was a recently made hole in the fence around the pool through which someone apparently came with the fish.
On Sunday, a festival was held in the neighborhood and police believe the fish may have been used as part of the festivities.© Japan Today
