Christmas in Shikoku cont.

Spent most of our trip at the Benesse House designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winner, Tadao Ando, which was amazing and comprised of four parts–the Beach, Park, Museum, and Oval. The Museum was part art gallery and part hotel, loved it. Here are some photos.

Visited the Himeji castle, which was a little boring to be entirely honest

The best sake factory I know–their sake was deliciously fragrant, goes down so smooth, and was clear as water (bad sake has a yellow tint)
