Facility Complex

Awaji Yumebutai is a facility complex designed by the world-famous architect Tadao Ando, located in the northern part of Awaji Island. The complex’s vast site spans about 28 hectares and is dotted with facilities including hotels, botanical halls, international conference halls, shops, and restaurants, and it’s even located adjacent to the government-managed National Akashi Kaikyo Park. As a whole, the area is a stunning location filled with seasonal plants and flowers.

Originally the area was a quarry used as reclaimed land, producing dirt and sand to be used in the construction of the Kansai International Airport and other facilities. Awaji’s mountains here had been cut down to nothing. Now, the area has been transformed into a space where

“Hyakudan-en Garden,” a 100 platform terraced garden, is located along the mountains’ slopes, and the Awaji Green-House is one of Japan’s largest greenhouses. These two locations are filled with beautiful, soothing plants, making them excellent places to take photos.

The “Circular Forum” and “Oval Forum” are built with unfinished concrete walls, and when you look up from inside them, the circular or oval framing of the sky gives a stunning sense of beauty.

The complex also has terrace restaurants and shops, as well as an open-air theater, so there is plenty to experience and enjoy!
