  • It's probably because I didn't read it very seriously, but some of Dunedin's artists are decorated with paintings. There are also other cards and accessories that are sold. The painting was a price of more than 50,000 yen in the Japan yen because there was a favor and thought that it was good though it was not possible to say. It is quite difficult if you do not want to be very strong.

  • This can be something that is easily missed since it's located on the first floor of the Railway Station. Just head up the stairs from the entrance area and it should be just at the top of the stairs....  more »

  • A beautiful gallery within a gorgeous building. I accidentally spent an hour here simply looking around the train station and admiring the artwork. Perhaps the best part was that it is free! This place is worth a visit, even if you are not that into art (like myself).
  • This is a fantastic shop. It features lots of work by local artists at affordable prices. The artists themselves hang out at the shop & work the till so you can occasionally meet the person you're buying from. Really beautiful pieces to buy here. Thoroughly recommended when visiting Dunedin. Go up the stairs from the Railway Station to find it (follow the signs for the sports museum).
