Awaji Yumebutai, Awaji

(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Kobe Awaji Naruto Expressway, Awaji in about 10 minutes away. Leave your car in the underground parking lot, location on the ground in the elevator. Atmosphere modern architecture opens up ago your eyes. Equipped with lifts for 100 steps to climb. Never ever seen you up onto the world opens up before one's eyes. Children's fun isn't it. Spring and summer over the season I think.

  • Various things are harmonious together with the stunning scenery. Plants, sea, buildings. If you like those things, especially from spring to summer places.

  • I went on a weekday, but why wasn't water. Algae of smoky smell. Are often sparsely populated, unmanned surveillance cameras peeking out. Buffer space created between the geometric shape is a store, and restaurant space has become. Identification of gravel roads will soon be all maze, call fatigue irritation throughout unapproachable image. When trying to find the identity of this huge building, I remember the amusement park on a rainy day. Architecture was 持te余sa where not everyone is just sitting quietly. Convince everyone to where life was removed. Remember the homeless of Kobe saw by chance on my way. Notice of artificial island on the bus until asleep and suddenly wake up and dream.
