Kiseki no HoshiAlso known as the Miracle Planet Museum of Plants, the Kiseki no Hoshi greenhouse is based in Yumebutai on Awaji Island - the 'island of flowers'.

Created in the year 2000 as a functioning greenhouse and 'botanical museum', it sustains many different varieties of plants. It has an arid garden, a tropical garden, a healing garden, an open-air rose garden, and a 'lifestyle' garden that re-interprets traditional Japanese gardens on modern terms.

The Yumebutai complex was an ecological response initiated to regenerate an area scarred by large-scale soil removal used for land reclamation in Osaka.

Nearby features include 'Hyakudanen', the hundred-step garden which features a geometric network of 100 stepped flowerbeds linked by an intricate maze of stairways.
