Sakuya Konohana Kan

Originally, the Sakuya Konohana Kan was a major pavilion of Expo '90 (refer to #377). After the exposition, this facility has still remained as a botanical garden, which has one of the largest green houses in the world.

The building was made in the shape of a water lily. The word "saku" in "sakuya" means "blooming" and "ya" is an exclamation. "Konohana" is "this flower" in English and "kan" is "building", respectively.
