Awaji Yumebutai, Awaji

An absolute must for modern architecture buffs, Awaji Yumebutai showcases flowers of the region amid a network of huge concrete gardens. A resort and conference center surrounded by a rich natural environment, the complex was built in the wake of the 1995 earthquake. Enjoy the visual contrast between the lush greenery and the grey concrete, all set against the blue background of the sea. Concrete, water, and green areas are masterfully interwoven into an artificial mountain in this huge project by architect Tadao Ando. The complex also houses one of the largest indoor botanical gardens in Japan. Public bus services from Kansai International Airport provide easy access to the site.

    Our friends in here. There just a period of autumn flowers and expansive grounds at flowers, combined with its vastness and the summer heat, anyway hot (&gt; _ <) where little unobstructed sunlight at least should have been off in the summer. I'd be in the fall and spring weather and great scenery.
