    From April 1st to November 30th Visiting hour : 11:30 am ~ 3:30 pm

House of Light room

This experimental work, where you can experience the artist's art world,
is architecture without a parallel to anywhere in the world.

House of Light was conceived as a guesthouse for meditation,
which Turrell took the concept from Junichiro Tanizaki's essay In Praise of Shadows.

The idea came across the artist's mind to incorporate his media, lights,
with the traditional usage of light in Japanese houses.

We hope you will enjoy your time surrounded by various kinds of lights amid
the abundant nature of Echigo-Tsumari.
