Nihonga (Japanese painting)

−A Work by Yamaba Haruki, One of Japan’s Up-And-Coming Artists−

The Nihonga drawing covering the entire expanse of the lobby wall is a work by Yamaba Haruki, one of Japan’s rising artistic talents. The lively drawing depicts many of Japan’s native flowers and Kyoto’s traditional festivals, and the vivacious impressions of the painting convey a cheery exuberance. The face of the other wall in the lobby is adorned with drawings that depict scenes from the four seasons. Check here for a message from the artist

The Design

Kyomachiya Luck You Bukkoji Higashimachi is modeled after the traditional Kyoto machiya. Inside of the compact, three-story, 9-room building, you’ll find many age-old novelties unique to the Kyomachiya like the “koshi-mado” (lattice windows), “the inuyarai”, and the “tsuridoko” (a lowered wall for displaying flowers and other ornaments). The bonsai at the entrance and the Shaolin dojo next door contribute to the fresh and unique ambiance.
