Traditional Japanese Lighting @ Meguro Gojoen 2016

I visited Meguro Gajoen in Tokyo to see ”和のあかり x 百段階段 2016," in English, Japanese Lighting x 100 step stairway exhibition 2016, this year again because it was really nice in the last year!

今年も行ってきました、目黒雅叙園の「和のあかり x 百段階段 2016」

Meguro Gajoen was first built in 1928 as first-class Japanese style restaurant and became the first banquet and wedding ceremony hall in Japan, and now is a hotel with beautiful Japanese banquet and wedding ceremony halls. 


Meguro Gojoen has famous stairway of 100 steps and banquet rooms which were designated as one of cultural assets of Tokyo. In this summer, you can see lighting exhibition there. 


These are used as lighting floats at Nebuta festival of Aomori prefecture, you can see them again in this year.


"Summer Festival," "Art," "Craft persons," "Traditional performing arts," are the theme in this year.

Japanese monsters in superstitions. With only one eye, without feet... scary! Why are Japanese monsters so creepy?? I think Japan has scariest monsters in the world. Please let me know if you know any other creepy monsters in your country.


I love this room the best! Lighting from real leaves.


Matching with cut paper arts and shadow pictures, wonderful.
