Cacti, euphorbias, and other succulent plants that grow in arid regions are cultivated and exhibited here. Visitors can enjoy the splendid forms of plants that can be likened to ‘green sculptures’.
Exhibits in this room are centered on plants that grow in tropical and subtropical regions and emit rich colours. Visitors are fascinated by the rich colours and green magic of each individual plant.
Plants are very important for maintaining the balance of our natural environment. At the same time they bring moisture, peace and comfort to our daily lives. This room introduces various plants intertwined with our daily lives.
The Jurassic tree (Wollemia nobilis), which was discovered in Australia in the 1990s (thought to remain only as fossils until then) is cultivated and displayed here. It is an exhibition that makes visitors think about the magnificent evolution of the plants here.
A ‘garden castle’ of growing plants was erected as a symbol of this room, and various creative ideas are implemented to make children feel closer to plant life. It’s almost like a festival garden celebrating flowers and greenery that parents and children can enjoy alike.
Some plants grow well in the shade or indoors. Plants that grow in low light suitable for indoor greening are on display here.
Exhibits of Pandanus utilis (originating from Madagascar), which is a member of the Pandanus tectorius that grows naturally along the coastline of Okinawa, and tropical fruit trees on display. This is a terrace where you can relax.
Trees that grow in Okinawa, Yunnan Province in China, Taiwan, and Vietnam are exhibited in the landscaped atrium with flowing water.
This room is a treasure trove of plants, with displays of rare plants from Yunnan Province, China (the world’s flower capital) and plants that influenced floral culture around the world.
