 The Westin Awaji Island

A red frame is the place having taken the photo.



Originally this ground was the wasteland that construction sand had been extracted from.

Planner made it the park that is full of nature blending in with the surrounding green and a flower.

Furthermore, a greenhouse plant garden, an international conference hall, a hotel, an open-air theater, some restaurants, and shopping area were also held.

Although the Great Hanshin-Awaji Earthquake hit this region just before its groundbreaking, at the moment, many people are visiting through the year. 

Mr. Tadao Ando performed the whole idea and architectural design.

It is a very unique large park.

The bottom of the beach is covered with 1 million shells of scallop.

Various fountains in this large beach start to dance on each place.
