Hi world! I'm Maki from Osaka :)
Since I'd love to introduce some cool places in Japan, this time I will write about one of my favorite places, Echigo-Tumari.
Before the hot summer ends, I went to Echigo-Tumari, Niigata prefecture. (It takes about 3 hours by air plane and car from Osaka.)
The area is famous for contemporary arts, and there are about 200 kinds of arts in the area. One of my purposes was to see the famous art, "House of Light" by James Turrell.
"House of Light" is a beautiful house, which we can stay and can feel and touch the art directly. (It's the only art in the world, and I stayed there for one night! Yay!)
Inside the house, I spend fabulous time! By lying down on the Japanese tatami mat, and I saw amazing sunset. At night, as the rooftop windows open, lots of stars appear just in front of me.... (Woo, I wanted to stay more!!)
For other arts of James Turrell, there are some in Nao Shima (Nao Island) and The 21st century museum in Kanazawa.
I also found this fun art which was created by a Cameroonian artist. I love these cheerful colors!
Have a lovely week!
