A special exhibition taking place at the Shunan City Museum of Art looks into a range of botanical works inspired by London's Kew Gardens, which have been a historical favorite of the British Royal Family. Approximately 100 artworks from the 18th and 19th Century will be on display, along with another 30 items related to the British Royal Family including furniture and ceramic pieces.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1100 yen, and no advance reservations are required.
