The Outer Wall Of The Shop
Kiyomizudera stands on a steep slope. 18 pillars support the 13-meter high stage. The pillars, which are too thick for a single adult to hold, are lined up along the slope of the valley, and are connected vertically and horizontally through a number of thick zelkova plates called tsuki. This traditional construction method, known as hangezukuri, uses lattice-like timbers that support each other and disperse the impact, making it possible to create highly earthquake-resistant structures even on cliffs that are normally difficult to construct. . Suspension construction that brings together traditional construction methods. Many architects pay attention to its earthquake resistance. Compared to modern architecture, where concrete is the norm, it gives the impression of being somewhat forlorn, but for hundreds of years this structure, which is built entirely out of supple wood, has firmly supported this stage, which is bustling with pilgrims every day. By the way, not a single nail is used.
Kyoto and Nara, where you can learn about Japan's old history and have become standard destinations for school excursions, are seeing a resurgence in such excursions. This spring, for the first time in three years, there were no restrictions on activity due to the coronavirus pandemic, and there are also businesses whose performance has approached pre-corona levels. With demand from inbound tourists (foreigners visiting Japan) declining, local governments in Kyoto and Nara are stepping up efforts to subsidize accommodation costs, etc.
Karesansui is a typical Japanese garden style that expresses the flow of water using stones, sand, plants, and topography in places where there is no water. Karesansui is a garden that you can admire quietly without taking a walk. Spend your time asking yourself the meaning of the space while slowly admiring the contrast between the white of the stones and the green of the plants, the expression of the sand, and the numerous stones.
The trees where the cherry blossoms were blooming are completely fresh green.

"The White Tiger Is Watching"
By Michiko Nakatani
The motif of the work is the white tiger, a spiritual beast that appears in Chinese mythology. The white tiger is said to be the origin of the place name of Toranomon. In the work, a group of girls playing with a white tiger mask is expressed with a concave relief. The expression of the group changes depending on the viewing angle. It is a work that allows you to have a visual experience as if the girls were actually there. It is located on the platform for Shibuya on the Tokyo Metro Ginza Line.
When it's so hot, not only women but also men need a parasol.

Marunouchi Street Park is a social experiment to verify how Marunouchi Nakadori should be and how it can be used as a park space. Starting in 2019, we have taken on various challenges such as laying natural grass, setting up outdoor workspaces, and constructing temporary buildings.
This year, the 4th year of the project, we have set our sights on Marunouchi Nakadori as a comfortable urban park space, and are working to create a more sustainable space. We will think about how it should be as a plaza, how to operate it, and how to create a place for urban tourism.
The concept of this time is "Marunouchi Street Park for everyone". In line with diversity and inclusion, we aim to create a space that anyone can use freely on a daily basis.
Sculptures have been installed around Marunouchi Nakadori for 50 years.
Unlike ordinary reliefs, Michiko Nakatani creates three-dimensional works in which unevenness is reversed.
The girl who becomes the motif is a pregnant woman. She caresses water in which fish swim in her skirt, staring at people passing by from every angle.
