This blog also has an English translation.
I am using the translation function, but I am editing based on the text.
It's still hard to read, but if you are interested, please read it.
I think every time, but it is difficult to translate Japanese into English and express my feelings.

Naha City Hall, Okinawa Prefecture.
I happened to read a news article and saw this building for the first time.
Before reading the content of the article, I was surprised at the appearance of the city hall.
"This ... looks like the Hanging Gardens of Babylon."
Its size, design, and atmosphere are the same.
Although I am an amateur, I am interested in archeology.
Among them, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon has a lot of charm.
The fact that it is uncertain whether it exists also stirs romance.
Then, let's compare.
Naha City Hall. It's a great building.
何か…連想しない？ オレだけ？ オレだけだよな。
Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Imaginary figure.
Something ... don't you associate it? Only me? I'm the only one.
It seems unlikely that the two buildings are related. I think it's just my delusion.
Neither the person in charge of designing the city hall nor the background of the design is known.
However, I have never associated it with the building I saw for the first time.
Not only Naha City, but also Okinawa Prefecture has a lot of problems geographically different from the mainland.
I'm curious about that, but I'll omit it this time.
I don't even know the details of Babylon's Hanging Gardens of Babylon. I'm just not studying enough.
There are too many things I don't know even if I'm interested.
If I can afford it mentally, I would like to study slowly.
I'm curious about the ruins of the Middle East and South America.
"Ozzy" means grandfather.
Orion beer originated in Okinawa.
I have also drank it. I have a habit but it's delicious.
