Architectural Building Historic Site
Rokkakudō, was a hexagonal wooden retreat overlooking the sea along the Izura coast in Kitaibaraki, Ibaraki Prefecture, Japan. Dating to 1905, it was part of the Izura Institute of Arts & Culture, Ibaraki University. Constructed in the sukiya-zukuri style, single-storey, with a tiled roof, an area of nine square metres, and painted red, it was designed by scholar and critic Okakura Tenshin who spent time there with painter Yokoyama Taikan. In 2003 it was added to the Tangible Cultural Properties Register. On 11 March 2011 it was swept off to sea in the tsunami. It was rebuilt and opened to the public in April 2012.

  • It is a barracks on the coast 5 berth, okakura Tenshin. Tenshin himself "seeing kanran Tei" and as it is known. Small building for billowy or view this narada character means that swells, so it seems. You can imagine that I actually went to Quay, he pleases. This seems to be where abandoned herself in reading and contemplation. It is particularly great or something is not there, a symbolic building of 5, so 外senai in the tourist office.

  • Visit the art event "KENPOKU ART 2016 Ibaraki Prefecture, Northern Arts Festival". Buildings for a place of contemplation and reading Tenshin okakura. It is on a cliff and well made. It might be to concentrate because such a place can be.

  • It is a very scenic location surrounded by water. It is felt that found this place is amazing. I think officials struggled, restored, on the building itself much impression did not pick up. I think it is worth the bother to come near good tourist attractions it is.
