The Super Scenic Observatory Designed By A World-famous Architect, Kengo Kuma

I can't turn my eyes away from the scenery of Shimanami-kaido that suddenly appears in front of me! And also I recognized the design of this observatory was very refined. To my surprised, an architect known in the world, Kengo Kuma designed here. There's nothing that obstructs the view, but only handrails.
