Garden of Fine Arts Kyoto京都府立陶板名画の庭

Art Museum

"A one-minute walk from Kitayama Station and a five-minute walk from the ""Kitayama Ekimae"" bus stop. This outdoor art museum adjoins the Kyoto Concert Hall. The museum consists of murals created with ceramic tiles. The museum is a world-first experiment at creating a mural garden enjoyed outdoors. In total, there are eight murals on display, four of which were exhibited at the 1990 International Garden and Greenery Exposition. The remaining four were newly created and thus can only be viewed here."

          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
