We visit the breathtaking “House of Light” in the Japanese countryside
With an “Outside-in” room and a bath lit by fibre optics, this is one of Japan’s most unique places to stay.
From capsule hotels to atmospheric inns and private island stays, visitors to Japan can choose from a number of unique accommodation options around the country. One of the most unusual and beautiful places to stay, however, is at an architectural masterpiece called the “House of Light”, located in the peaceful countryside of Niigata Prefecture. Designed by Los Angeles-born artist James Turrell, the building was initially created for the Echigo-Tsumari Art Triennale, which draws tourists to the region with an intriguing collection of outdoor artworks and cultural programs.
