The designer from Color Kinetics Japan, Inc.—known for his illumination work in Tokyo’s Rikugien Gardens—this time lit up the lush, verdant garden of the Funaya, which dates from the mid-17th century. Evoking the literary giants who have visited Funaya, such as Shiki Masaoka, Sōseki Natsume, Akiko Yosano and others, the artist created a memorable landscape woven from the greenery and light.
