Shoji screen

By | Interior Coordinate, Life in Japan

We did the work to put up the shoji by ourselves.

One day I stayed at a cheap old inn with my American friend. However, that cheap inn had a small window with a small lattice.

He said, “In Japan there is an aesthetic sense even in such a cheap hotel.”

In other words, in America, if you spend a lot of money, there are buildings with aesthetic sense, but if you don’t spend money, you can’t find aesthetic sense.

Japanese shoji screens give the room a perfect balance of light and shadow.

In Japan, you don’t have to live in a luxury home to find a sense of beautiful interiors.
