Awaji Yumebutai, Awaji

4.0
#1 of 6 in Parks in 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.

  • I want to go to a blossoms are in bloom again. Is a large flower bed facing the Seto Inland Sea. Or when listen to hoteliers and Kansai Airport to fill cut taken from the slopes of this mountain. Construction of this resort is designed to mend the scars on the mountain. The total construction cost. Creative not (laughs)

  • Westin hotel is located next to the great architecture, and beautiful flowers of a variety of events events. See the flower greenhouses so it isn't cold. New year's decorations and flower pots of bonsai is wonderful. Events vary depending on the time you want to go again!

  • It was a nice building luxurious, beautiful. Scenic ocean views from the top are spectacular. I think will show different if not blooming flowers too much because it was winter, but come in another season.
