Towers of giraffes in the morning sun?

(▲Top image)The sunrise over Osaka Bay viewed from the east side of the top floor of the RIKEN Integrated Innovation Building (IIB), which is located on Port Island, an artificial island. Silhouettes of the gantry cranes along the wharf emerging in the morning sun.


Looking out from the south side of the IIB. In the far distance, behind the airplane taking off from Kobe Airport, you can see the faint outline of the mountains of the Kii Peninsula.


The Port Liner’s Iryo Center Station seen from the west side of the IIB. Many RIKEN staff get on and off here and at the neighboring Keisan Kagaku Center Station.
