Connecting People and Places,
and People with People.
The "Shimanami Kaido" connects Onomichi City on Japan’s main island with Imabari City
on the island of Shikoku via bridges running across numerous islands
in the Seto Inland Sea. Around the halfway point on the route lies Omishima Island,
where architect Toyo Ito opened the Toyo Ito Museum of Architecture, Imabari in 2011.
With this event and Ito’s lead, island residents and young architects came together
to begin transforming the appeal of the island’s natural beauty, culture and community.
Yamaha Motor contributed to the project by proposing new ways to get around the island with the 05GEN and 06GEN concept models.
The 05GEN will be on display at the Steel Hut section of the museum.
Display Period: From July 4, 2016 to June 15, 2017
