In the gentle light leaking from retro wood frame of window and lattice, you will open kurado and enter the house inside.
You may feel a space of shadow generated in the long and narrow house made by solid wooden material.
Interior is imaged with natural colors in the picture drawn by Alfons Mucha.
Enjoy the small garden over Tsukimi Shoji and also through the antique glass door.
