Our last artistic destination in Japan was the Hyogo Prefectural Center for Advanced Science and Technology, halfway between Kobe (神戸) and Okayama (岡山), at the end of Harima Expressway.
We just missed the bus after getting off the railway, which resulted in a 1-hour wait for the next one. After unsuccessfully trying to rent bikes (I just learned to cycle for a couple of months at that time), we decided to walk to the center, which took almost 2 hours.
We did manage to capture nice rural landscapes along the way though.
2 hours of walking was well worth it to witness this shocking view.
I particularly liked the concentric fields of vegetation.
It appeared there were guesthouses in the center, but we opted to stay in Osaka to witness the nightlife instead.
