  • Visit ed. It's a lot of fun because of the various tricks. It seems to be able to stay if you make a reservation.

  • Three years ago, i visited the Earth Art Festival and booked up to half a year in advance, and I thought that staying at the Festival was a dream come true again. If you look at the reservation situation by chance in September, is it a bug news?? There seems to have been a cancellation, and it is 9 days, 10 days and vacancies are out. I was worried that this would be a stay, and the typhoon was going to make landfall in Kanto, but I made a reservation on the 9th. The price is 42,000 yen for two people, but i am very satisfied because I was able to enjoy the time to soak in Mr. James's "light" and to be able to rent it out overnight in this building. Fortunately, the weather was sunny and sometimes cloudy, and the moon and stars were beautiful. We who loved the star gave the voice of the joy from the ceiling which was liberated after the sunset, and taurus and Subaru before the sunrise. I saw a satellite cross. Probably because it was the ISS... I could see the Andromeda galaxy (of course I brought a telescope)

  • I stayed with three families with infants. It is said that it is possible to charter it for nine or more adults, and one other guest also participated on the day. James Turrell wants his family to interact with each other, so we talk about where to sleep with guests, the order of meals and baths. The dinner we had pre-booked at 18 is delivered and we start eating, and soon the sunset installation begins. When you open the ceiling today, the sky is cut out and you can see various colors reflected by led light, and the color of the sky changes one after another under the illusion of the eye. It is a unique work to appreciate light by sight and experience. The installation started an hour before sunrise, but the small children were only half asleep and watched while getting up in another room. Led lights are projected in the black of the bath, and the fluctuation and light of the surface of the water react to an interesting bathing experience. I thought it was a wonderful fusion of high-floor Japanese houses and light art that are unique to heavy snowfall areas.

  • Unique art experience ...overnighting in a Turrell piece. In a quiet locale, with even more art in the fields and town nearby. All the grace and completeness of Japanese culture.
  • Traditional Japanese stay, sleep on floor, can order dinner or bring your own meal to cook. If you wanna do shower or bath, try it before sunset or impossible to see anything bin bathroom
  • Incredible art, beautiful house, good company and best bath ever
  • Honestly not that cool.
  • This was well worth the trip to locate ( not difficult ), a definite highlight of our trip to Japan.
