Japanese Tradition and Chinoiserie

When you go up the stairs along the mushiko mado (insect cage window), you will see the round window at the alcove considered as the moon over Higashiyama.
Open the door with transparent bamboo ornament.
It is a space imaged by Gion-Shirakawa and the riverside willow.
In the first floor at the back of tatami corridor, there is a living room with chinoiserie design.
Enjoy the garden listening the music by bluetooth sound bar.
