Spaceship Lands in Nagoya
Actually this is Oasis21 - Nagoya's new bus terminal which opened in 2002. But Oasis21 is more than just a bus terminal, Oasis21 also includes a park called "Field of Green". The bus station is directly under the park area. The bottom floor (called "The Milky Way") links the bus station with the subway (Higashiyama Line's Sakae station) and contains over thirty shops and restaurants from Starbucks to the Pokémon Center.
The Roof of "Spaceship Aqua"
The most unique aspect of Oasis21 is the translucent roof (open to the public). The roof contains a shallow pool with fountains. But these are more than decoration: the water serves both to cool the lower levels of the building as well as recycling rain water for irrigating the green spaces of Oasis21.
