Tea Ceremony Room in Kifune Ugenta 貴船 右源太 お茶室
Japan

In Kyoto kifune UGENTA, there are two amazing rooms.

One Japanese traditional room, and  Western style.

Both have private cypress-wood outdoor bathtubs. 

The room is huge, but the paper shoji screens can transform the room into an intimate living and sleeping space with the simple sliding of wood across wood.

All offset by wooden furniture from the Japanese-American designer George Nakashima.

The theme is overwhelmingly minimalist where Japanese aestheticism meets nature and impeccable taste. 

The owner has traveled around the world , so wanted to create beautiful for the ultimate ryokan experience.

More About Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.Text by Steve Smith.
