"Trick Art" utilizes visual illusions to create unusual viewer experiences, such as 3-D paintings and works with differing impressions depending on the angle. For example, in the two versions of the picture below, the length of the woman's legs appear to change depending on the angle at which it's viewed.
Stay a night at a ryokan (Japanese-style inn) tailored to foreign tourists, “The Ryokan Tokyo Yugawara,” in Kanagawa Prefecture’s Yugawara!
Dormitory rooms start at 2700 yen per night, possibly making this the cheapest lodging in Yugawara!
Have you heard of the long wallets sold by the Kobe-based brand ATAO?
The brand has few physical retail outlets, so it may not be a highly recognized name brand. However, ATAO is known for products that are so easy to use that you won’t want to let go of them, so many of their products have to be ordered in advance if you want to get them!
I highly recommend this facility to those interested in traditional Japanese houses! Here I will be introducing Kanagawa Prefecture’s Kamakura Guesthouse, “a small inn with a sunken hearth.”
Yokohama’s famous tourist spot, the “Yokohama Red Brick Warehouse,” is hosting open-air ice skating!
Each year different artists use the entirety of the skating rink as a blank canvas to use as they see fit.
Eight different buildings of the Yamate Seiyoukan are decorated with lights and illuminated for Christmas, and these western-style houses are decorated to represent Christmas celebrations around the world. In addition to decorating the houses according to Christmas customs for eight different countries, various other events are also held, such as illuminations, candle gardens, and concerts.
This time I come to visit the 33rd National Urban Greenery Fair Yokohama, when the whole Park is a paradise of roses!
Japan’s rainy season may be coming up, but there’s still plenty to look forward to! While June is generally wet and muggy, it’s also when varying colours of hydrangea begin to bloom beautifully all over Kanto. If you’re looking to see the flowers in all their glory, we suggest heading to the history-rich city of Kamakura, which was once the capital of Japan.
