The internationally famous architect, Tadao Ando, created this unusual outdoor display of 8 'famous' paintings photo engraved on ceramic and installed in ingenious settings. They are immune to weather and available throughout the seasons. Entry is next to the North gate of the Botanical Garden. Several excellent cafes and shops are on the other side of the street.
