“Awaji Yumebutai” – The World of “Tadao Ando” Living with Nature

Unfortunately, the promotion of economic activity in the 1960s led to the trees in the northern part of Awaji Island to be cut down.
To counteract this, Tadao Ando set out to restore the destroyed nature. His creation, as we know now, is Awaji Yumebutai. Yumebutai is a space where one can peek into Ando’s artful worldview of people, nature, and architecture.

The 5 Must-Sees of Awaji Yumebutai

1)Building Design, courtesy of Tadao Ando

Incorporating concrete architecture and nature, Yumebutai can be enjoyed simply by exploring the building itself!
Be on the lookout for where curves turn to straight lines among the architecture, and  the grand scale of the building that skillfully connects the indoors and outdoors. This masterpiece encompasses the unique worldview and philosophy of legendary architect Tadao Ando.

2)Chapel”Capella Di Mare”

The main feature of the chapel is its roof with a cross-shaped slit.
The natural light through the slit falls into the chapel, which makes the space a sacred atmosphere.

3)100-Step Garden(Hyakudan-en Garden)

Hyakuan-en as the name suggests, consists of 100 flower beds arranged in a staircase pattern. On a sunny day, you can see Osaka Bay shimmering in the backdrop of the garden, resulting in a magnificent view of greenery juxtaposed with Ando’s architecture and the sea.

4)Water Garden of Shells

Nearly 1 million scallop shells sit on the water’s surface, covering an area of about 10,000 square meters. Here, seashells set to be discarded are recycled and reused. Each shell is carefully sorted, washed, and packed by hand. Undiscovered works of art lay waiting to be found!

5)Awaji Greenhouse

The Awaji Greenhouse houses five exhibitions: “Green Sculpture,” “Garden of Color” “Essence of Green,” “Evolution Garden,” and “Garden of Prosperity”. Surround yourself in an abundance of beautiful flora from a variety of different viewpoints, all radiating rich, vivid colors.
