Rokkakudō, officially known as Kanrantei, 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.

  • If you are in the area, stop by Rokkakudo for a visit. The original owner chose an amazing spot for a vacation house with some of the best ocean views in the world. 
  • It was a place you want to visit at least once as a holy place of the painting. Park as to the admission to 300 yen. I know historical significance is in the description of Tenshin okakura and Rokkaku in a small museum on the left side, so watch it. 迫ri出shita to the sea but not in the Hall, and again built a great place I understood deeply thought. Travelling by car in onahama, Iwaki direction from Tokyo to go around a little, but down in Kitaibaraki-IC, away from the main road so to stop just a little better! By car 5 Shibaura Cape Park from another angle Rokkaku often looks.

  • Located within walking distance from the last 5 tourist hotel. View combined with the rugged coastline around rocks, cliffs, and even quaint views. East Japan earthquake tsunami swept in, that was built later and is now building.
