Knowing the Fish Pavilion
I actually like this story of where it gets its name.  It comes from a conversation between two ancient philosophers. Walking along a stream and looking at the fish in it, one says to the other how happy he finds the fish to be. The other replies “You are not a fish. How can you know that the fish are happy?” The first replies “You are not me. How do you know I don’t know the fish are happy?” 
They were having a Chrysanthemum exhibit. Chrysanthemums are considered one of the four honored plants honored in autumn.
