I took a day trip to Chino City, Nagano Prefecture. My main purpose was to visit Mishaka Pond and I also stopped by Meiji Onsen Ryokan. In this article, I will pick up the Chino Cultural Complex, which is a very artistic building.
After I visited Mishaka Pond and Meiji Onsen Ryokan, I planed to return to Tokyo。
Near the Chino Station
However, I just happened to see a characteristic building near the Chino Station.
In front of the building
The building appears to be very artistic and the sign says “Chino Cultural Complex”. I decided to go in it.
In the building
Just like the exterior, the interior is so cool.
The rest room is also cool.
Around the building
A steam locomotive was displayed near the building.
From the platform at the station
Now I had a train to catch, so I moved to the station and returned to Tokyo.
Originally, I didn’t have any plan to visit this artistic building at all. I just decided to visit there when I saw it. After I returned to Tokyo, I looked into the building and found that the designer received a Japan art academy award in 2010.
