Wa Kingyo is a pond-based fish app where you simply scatter flower-shaped bait across the pond and watch the fish swim and eat. Not a lot of management here, but the game is a great stress-reliever and is exceptional in its design. In Japanese, Wa means “peace”, “relaxation”, or “Japan.” Kingyo is the Japanese word for goldfish. This app stands as a representation of classic Japanese art, as the goldfish backgrounds are drawn with a Japanese flair. The bait is a Japanese flower like Cherry Blossoms, Chrysanthemums, and Camellia. If watching fish in ponds is your thing, then this is your app.

Wa Kingyo - Goldfish Pond

For those who...

  • It’s ideal for those who simply need a little time to themselves.

Not for those who...

  • Playing around with fake fish can get a little tiring after a while. If you’re not already in a relaxed mood, you may find this app a bit tedious and pointless.

Why we love it

If you find the sounds of water relaxing, Wa Kingyo is for you. The fish will swim around and splash water on their own, or you can mix it up yourself.
