400, when representing a unit type,
can be a measure, or something far beyond.

For example, 400 meters represents exactly one lap of a standard outdoor running track. 400 can also be an ISO speed for camera film or the number of calories in a bowl of braised pork rice. Therefore, how can we interpret 400 years in terms of life in a city? If we view Tainan as a unit of measurement, what do we get when we add 400 to Tainan? In Tainan 400, we invite you to create your own way to measure Tainan’s culture from a 360° panoramic view for 365 days. Experience and define the city intimately, using your own imagination and your own mode of travel.
